OIART graduate Doug McKendrick ('00) spoke to the students about touring and live sound. He is the Technical Director at Toronto's legendary Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall. Before Massey Hall, Doug toured with Cirque Du Soleil, Tegan and Sara, Stompin' Tom Connors and many more. Doug told the students that Massey Hall is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation and upgrade. He just finished overseeing the install of a massive new PA system for the building, which over its 100 year history has hosted legendary concerts by Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan and the Charlie Parker/Dizzy Gillespie concert still considered the greatest live Jazz performance in history. Exciting things are in store for the historic venue and Doug is excited to be right in the middle of it all!
