Meeting Topic: February Monthly Report
Meeting Location: Webster University
February might be the shortest month, but Webster University's AES chapter managed to pack plenty of audio fun into 28 days. In addition to our weekly General Meetings, we had two special events last month. On the 10th, Bill Crabtree, esteemed audio engineer and professor from Middle Tennessee State University, gave a guest lecture in Webster's Studio A. Here, Mr. Crabtree spoke to an audience of mostly senior students about audio graduate programs around North America, and why they are beneficial. In addition, he presented to the students a recording he engineered, complete with tips on how to make a mix sound more professional. February was also host to our first Concert Series of 2017. Held on the 17th, this featured some local St. Louis bands in a concert put on completely by the AES chapter, as well as some student volunteers. The fourth and final Concert Series of the year will be held later this month. Finally, we also put together the first tour of the semester last Friday to a local St. Louis studio: Shock City. Here, students had a chance to see what a real-world studio looks like, and also how it operates. With one successful tour down, we are already in the planning stages for a tour to another local audio hotspot sometime in April. And on March 24th — 26th, we will be holding the Central Region Audio Student Summit, an audio summit completely put on by the student AES officers.
