In rural Grant, Mich., a new performing arts center has been built on the public school campus. Fully equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, the center offers assistive-listening units from Listen Technologies Corporation (Sandy, Utah).
Until recently, all music, theater and community events took place in the school’s gymnasium. Says performing arts director Valerie Sweers, “Our older audience members and those with hearing difficulties just gave up. The frustration wasn’t worth it.” The sound system for the 794-seat venue was designed and installed by Listen dealer Audio Designs and student interns under Sweers’ supervision.
Listen VP of sales and marketing Cory Schaeffer said, “Because our receivers amplify the sound transmitted from the sound system, it helps people clearly hear the presentation, rather than the ambient noise of the audience. It works especially well for those wearing hearing aids.”
