Churchill Student Excels In Music Theater Program
Student stories of inspiration and success.
It’s not every day a person can say he or she knew from the start what their future would look like at a young age, but one Churchill student seems to have it figured out.
We at Patch were particularly inspired by a recent blog post from the Churchill Blast 24 team, detailing the talents of one student working hard behind the scenes of the annual production to make a spectacular show.
As sound crew chief and student tech director, senior student Evan Cook has a tremendous responsibility on his hands – the sound and look of this year’s Blast 24 production, according to the team.
The blog post reads:
Evan is especially proud to implement a cutting edge sound strategy in this year's show. Inspired by a lecture by Tony Meola, the sound designer for Lion King and Wicked, Evan is modifying the traditional stereo sound system of left and right speakers with the addition of a center cluster. As Evan notes, "this directionalizes the sound from the singer on stage, and makes it sound like the vocals are emanating right from the singer's face, which is much more natural."
His passion for his work has landed him admission next year to the Sound Design program at University of North Carolina School of the Arts, according to the blog.
