Sun Feb 19! Training Day for Sound and Media teams at UCC Leppävaara

9 Feb

Sunday 19th February we will organize a sound and media training right

after the UCC Leppävaara service. From 12.15-15.00 we will go through

the basics of setting up and operating the sound and projection



In UCC Leppävaara we are searching for 4-6 people to come and join the

sound team and 2 to join the media team. In the sound team you once a

month, in a team of 2, set up and break down the sound and media

systems and operate it during the service. No earlier experience or

technical knowledge is required, hence we are organizing this training

afternoon! Also, if you just want to orientate whether doing sound or

media is something for you, or you are a musician who wants to have a

bit better understanding of what the technicians do, please come

along! Joining the training afternoon does not mean you have to be a

volunteer afterwards, so don’t be afraid to take this great opportunity

check it out!


Please sign-up by Saturday Feb 18 by emailing

 so we can be prepared.
