BUENA PARK, Calif.â€”Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc along with Yamaha Corporation of America, Shure, ProPresenter, and Elation Lighting will hold the next Worship Arts Technology Summit (WATS) at the Cathedral of Faith Church, July 14-16, in San Jose, California.
The success of the WATS Seminars continues to grow with an outpouring of response from attendees. As in past seminars, several â€˜trackâ€™s will take place including Musician, Audio, Vocal, Lighting, and Media. For complete description of the tracks, visit the WATS web site at www.gotowats.com. Audio master classes will feature front of house engineer/monitor engineer for Chris Tomlin and many others, Kyle McMahon.
The WATS Seminars are open to all members of worship teams, and the training schedule has been reformatted to allow for a two-day event so that attendees have ample opportunity to attend one or both days. With an understanding that many worship teams require basic
training session in the area of audio and other aspects of technical ministries, a WATS Boot Camp will be held the day prior to the opening of the WATS Seminar.
â€œThe best word to describe the WATS seminar is personal,â€? states Matthew Lewis, Pastor of Worship & The Arts, Beachpoint Church, Fountain Valley, Calif. â€œBy the end of the conference, I felt like I had made friends with those who attended and those who taught us. Iâ€™ve never felt that at another conference. Typically, people talk at you and present ideas to you; but the WATS teaching team actually takes the time to show you new concepts and ideas. WATS is a seminar for the entire worship team to be equipped with practical wisdom and teaching. The instructors are the real deal; they are worship leaders, musicians, and techs that are in the trenches.â€?
