This 2-hr hands-on workshop introduces basics lighting equipment and programming so you can light live performances on Vera’s stage.

In this 2-hour workshop, students will learn about different lighting instruments, how to program and focus lights, as well as basic lighting console operation. Programming and operating lights at a live show is what sets apart a concert venue experience. Through interactive demonstrations, students will have a practical grasp on lighting concepts and systems.
