I worked in higher education for 3 years. I was an admissions representative, so I understand the pressures and the rewards of helping others attend college. Higher education statistics, especially for our home state of Illinois, haven't been very good in recent years. There's a significant shift in the younger generation being entrepreneurs, working at start-ups, or learning a trade/skill. Because of these job choices, not as many people are choosing to pursue a college degree.

Making a Difference in Small Spaces

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Sep 26, 2018 1:30:00 PM

We find that a lot of people that come to us for solutions on staging equipment work in small spaces. What we mean by small spaces are that they're music directors for a small - medium sized, specific group of people. They lead a choir, band, or other performance group.

First Day of School...In College

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Sep 19, 2018 3:00:00 PM

I remember my first day of college. You start all over as a nervous freshman. It feels very much like your first day of high school. But, the stakes are higher. You're on your own to make decisions. You get to decide how to spend your day and how much you'll get out college.

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Sep 12, 2018 3:00:00 PM

We've found out through our customers that there are many different uses for Seated Choir and Band Risers. The title implies that it's for choir and bands...and you're right. That is the primary use!

Our Top National and Local Performance Spaces for Entertainment

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Aug 29, 2018 4:45:00 PM

I recently came across this list of the Most Beautiful Performance Spaces. I have to admit, I've only been to one of the venues listed - Red Rocks in Morrison, CO. It was beautiful when we toured it in the morning. You would think hardly anyone would be there, but there were people there - in workout clothes. Yes, we were there to worked out too, because those stairs are intense enough just walking up and down.
