Dan Monaco, L&M Sound & Light's 20 year veteran audio engineer, drove the audio console at Pheonix Production's "A White Christmas" to close out their 2013 season. I have been the audio designer for Phoenix for 20 years while Dan has engineered the majority of their productions. I attended this weekend with my family and friends hoping that I would be able to hear everything while trying to enjoy the show, but what I heard was so good I could hardly enjoy the performers, I was too busy smiling at the work Dan Monaco had done. Dan engineered the same way a good maestro drives an orchestra, a clear understanding of the score and book and an integral part of the sonic landscape. Congratulations Dan for a superior job! All of us at L&M are proud of you.
A congratulations to Tom Martini and Phoenix Productions for continually raising the bar for community theater in our country.
