Here are a few snapshots of the pre-production for AwakeningSoul 2019

MONDAY - three days to go. Ann and Fran meet to decide the layout for the banners, using the cards. We were at a coffee shop and a woman came over and said "wow...those are beautiful!"
Ann on the run (upon arrival... the room was still set from a previous event)
Eric Murrell rigs the stage and preps for the sound system
Once the room is clear and Eric has the stage set, Fran starts rigging the banners to hang
Monday night - after a 12 hr drive, Charles and Lindsey arrive from FL with the PA and instruments
TUESDAY - Charles and Fran set up chairs, pipe and drape and lighting is being rigged, Ann hustles to the next project
with expert help from River
Isabel, Chris and River are in and its...sound check time... fine tuning the monitor mix, with Eric Murrell at the wheel! Sound checks are traditionally not much fun but with this crew...
it's a pretty light-hearted time!
And then.... here we go!!
