The College of Music's Ruby Diamond Concert Hall Featured on Avid's Blog

The College of Music's purchase and installation of a new, state-of-the-art audio console garners increased attention for its facilities and production capabilities. 


On August 30, 2017, Avid’s official blog published Derk Hagedorn’s interview with the College of Music’s Michael Shapiro, Specialist in the Arts at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. Shapiro and Hagedorn, the Senior Marketing Manager for Avid Live Sound Systems and Music Notation, discussed the College of Music’s recent purchase of a new, state-of-the-art audio console, an Avid VENUE | S6L system, for Ruby Diamond. While discussing the selection and purchase process, the installation of the console, and the staff’s transition to using the S6L console, Shapiro had the opportunity to highlight the many types of performances by College of Music ensembles in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall, as well as the important role that RDCH plays in the Tallahassee community as a premier venue for all kinds of live musical performances.
