Meyer Sound’s on-site, state-of-the-art, 57-plus-seat theater has been named “The Pearson Theatre” in memory of the late Don Pearson, sound reinforcement pioneer and co-founder of touring sound company Ultra Sound. Pearson, who passed away on January 9, 2006, spent the last year and a half of his life at Meyer Sound as a staff technical seminar instructor after being a major Meyer Sound customer and collaborator with John and Helen Meyer since the company’s founding in 1979.
The Pearson Theatre is a unique venue constructed for the multiple purposes of supporting Meyer Sound’s professional seminar program, providing a real-world laboratory for R&D, acting as a demonstration facility for the company’s products.
“Don was many things to us over the years: friend, customer and colleague,” says Helen Meyer, executive VP of Meyer Sound. “He was passionate in all of those roles, but his overriding passion was for seeking and attaining great sound. Naming the theater for Don feels like a very appropriate way to commemorate his contributions to Meyer Sound and professional audio.”
