Sound system to be installed at the Liberty Theatre

 

January 25, 2018



The Liberty Theatre recently announced that it has been awarded the third and final grant needed to purchase and install a permanent sound system in the theater. Pacific Power Foundation has awarded the Liberty Theatre the remaining $4,000 for the project. This will be combined with the previous awards of $22,000 by the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation and $15,000 from the Oregon Community Foundation.

The Liberty Theatre currently pays between $1,000 and $1,500 per event to rent an adequate sound system for Liberty presented performances. Those systems often add hours of setup/tear down time before and after each event. Outside promoters have to rent or bring their own sound system for their shows. This not only greatly impacts the budget, but also often results in patron and artist complaints concerning the inconsistency of sound from event to event. Having their own sound system designed to meet the unique design of the Liberty means they can control sound quality, train engineers in-house, and provide consistent, optimum experiences for their patrons.

Engineers have been brought in to model and study the acoustics of the theater and will be providing assistance in the purchase and installation of the system.
