Music Tech Mini-Con

The 2018 Mini-Con is set for Saturday, March 24th.

This year’s Mini Con is a “Guitar Summit”. Local greats Roger Hoard, Mike Ofca, and Scott Elliott will be on hand to talk gear and demonstrate how they get their sound. The Mini Con also welcomes local luthiers (guitar makers) Bill Crook and Cory Eller. Both will have their handiwork on display and Crook will share his experiences as a guitar tech for national touring bands like America.

The Mini-Con is geared towards area High School students who are interested in learning more about careers in Music Technology. The event features demonstrations, workshops, and panel discussions related to Recording, Audio Production, Live Sound, Electronic Music, and more. Hosted by WLU’s Music Technology program, the afternoon brings together WLU students, Music Tech graduates, local professionals, and high school students. Join us for this FREE event and learn about the industry, the people, and the programs. If you’re interested in any kind of Music Technology, this event is for you!
