Lakeside Chautauqua 
November 2016
Lights! Camera! Action!
#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving back, is today! Join the movement and support Lakeside Chautauqua with a gift to the Lakeside Fund. So far, Lakesiders from across the U.S. are joining #GivingTuesday and giving back.  
 
Hoover Auditorium is in need of updated sound and lighting, which will be the centerpiece project for this year's #GivingTuesday. Over the past 10 years, it has become increasingly difficult to book quality acts who will work with Hoover's outdated technology.
 
S o, to continue to attract top-notch entertainers, preachers and lecturers to Lakeside, we must upgrade the sound system and stage lighting in Hoover Auditorium. Your support on #GivingTuesday will help with these urgent needs.

Sound & Speakers
First, the center speakers clustered above the stage need to be updated to a state-of-the-art 'line array' configuration. In addition, subwoofers, which are pieced together today, need to be replaced with updated stage subwoofers. Electrical power must be increased for the system upgrade to support the new 'powered' speakers, each of which includes an amplifier.
  
Electric & Cables
Next, new cabling will need to run from backstage Hoover to the soundboard in the center of the auditorium. Additional cabling needs to be installed onstage for when we rent a second soundboard for larger concerts. Finally, additional onstage monitors used by the performer must be purchased. 
  
Stage Lighting
Elaborate stage lighting continues to be a necessity for all performances, worship services and lectures. LED 'special effect' lighting fixtures must be installed to enhance the ambience of the large venue. All existing stage lights need to be replaced with LED bases and lamps to conserve energy and create consistent stage lighting. To run the lighting, a new console must be purchased. We will also need to install LED lighting fixtures in the lobby to lower the heat and energy usage in the historic building.
  
To continue to provide you and your family with exceptional concerts, worship services and lectures in 2017 and beyond, we need your help on #GivingTuesday . Consider supporting the Hoover Sound and Lighting Project on Tuesday, Nov. 29 and become a VIP Supporter!
