Students working in their chosen field while still in college is nothing new but for students in the Live Sound Technology department at the New England School of Communications, the field work takes them to warmer climates while getting world-class experience.
Eight Live Sound Technology Seniors will leave for Miami, Florida on Saturday to work as stage crew on Country Cruising 2014, a floating cavalcade of country music stars with stops in Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Mexico. At the heart of this great opportunity, which takes place on the Norwegian Pearl, is hands-on work in live sound as the cruise features performances by 25 country music acts including Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Wynnona & The Big Noise, Neal McCoy, Love & Theft, Craig Morgan and Lonestar.
The 7 day field experience is made possible by a partnership with Cruise Production, a company founded by NESCom alum Tim Cabral after his many years working for Carnival Cruise Lines.
Eric Ferguson, Director of Audio at NESCom will be working alongside the students for the 7 day cruise which runs from January 12th to the 19th. More information on the cruise is available at countrycruising.com
