Curious about the amazing upgrades and developments at the new state of the art theater at the Center for the Arts? This community gem is poised to deliver top notch entertainment for years to come with cutting edge filming and recording capabilities. The last year has seen the Center unveil a series of live-streamed concerts expertly filmed with superb sound. We’ll be talking with Conrad Sisk, current technical director and former sound engineer at the Center. Join us here, on Facebook or on Youtube and enjoy going down the rabbit hole of what it takes to sound and look good both in person and online.
Conrad earned a BA in Ethnomusicology from the College of William & Mary in 2008, and spent the next six years as a performing and teaching musician. He took an interest in sound engineering; recording and mixing scores for his friends’ film and theater projects, and doing live sound production for his own bands and musical ensembles.
In 2014, Conrad moved to Penn Valley and began doing live sound as a full-time vocation, working as an audio tech and engineer for large-scale productions, including concerts, corporate events, music festivals, and trade shows.
In 2020, Conrad was hired as a sound engineer for the newly renovated Center for the Arts. Throughout the pandemic, he has provided stage sound for the performers and broadcast sound for the at-home audience for the Center’s livestream concert series. In 2021, Conrad was made the technical director of the Center. He is very happy to be working more closely with such fine and capable folks in this new capacity.
