Checking Out The Chan Centre

Last week, I had the chance to visit the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts on campus at the University of British Columbia. It’s an absolutely gorgeous concert that was originally designed for classical and orchestral music performances – those not requiring much, if any, sound reinforcement. This year, the venue has been going through a revamp of its audio system, including new line arrays for louder shows and Meyer’s new CAL steerable loudspeakers for those requiring precisely-directed sound. The entire centre, including its very cool studio theatre, is being networked using an Optocore fibre ring.

The venue’s self-produced season just wrapped, and now the team is getting ready for grad madness. We’ll wish them well and look forward to catching up once that wraps up…
