PreSonus Education Market Manager Evan Brown traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana last week, where two spectacular events happened at the same time, the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, and the Bands of America Grand National Championships! PreSonus had a great showing at both events, here’s a few highlights!
At Grand Nationals, PreSonus was proud to have many ensembles using various products in their setups, as well as 3 of the top 12 Finalist bands utilizing PreSonus Live Sound Products!
Across the Street at PASIC, PreSonus was displayed on the show floor by our friends at Pageantry Innovations, showing CDL series loudspeakers, a StudioLive 32SX Mixing Console, a StudioLive 24R Rack Mixer, and ATOM! Evan spent time each day in the PI booth answering questions, meeting users, and showing off the product. On Friday afternoon, our friends at Lone Star Percussion hosted their Amplify sessions, wrapping up with a panel discussion featuring 5 experts in the marching activity, including PreSonus’ Evan Brown!
PreSonus continues to be committed to the education market and marching arts! For more information on PreSonus products & educational resources, visit edu.presonus.com
This winter, PreSonus has welcomed Cap City Percussion to their growing list of WGI World Class Percussion Ensembles!
Cap City was envisioned in 2011 as a group for percussionists from the Central Ohio area to grow as musicians and performers. The ensemble began competing in both Winter Guard International and the Ohio Indoor Performance Association during the 2012 season in percussion independent A class. During the 2012 season, Cap City was promoted to Open class and finished its inaugural season in 9th place at WGI World Championships. Cap City followed up a strong first season with a WGI open class gold medal in 2013, a promotion to world class in 2014, and has been a perennial PIW Finalist since the 2017 season.
“Cap City couldn’t sound like we do without the amazing sound quality that PreSonus brings to the activity” says Donnie Ross, CEO of Cap City Percussion. PreSonus Education Market Manager Evan Brown is thrilled as well. “To have Cap City using PreSonus helps further extended our reach and commitment to the marching arts, and with the help of partners like this, we can continue to improve and refine our products to meet the needs of marching programs all over the world!”, states Brown.
For the 2019 Season, Cap City has chosen a StudioLive 32 Series III Digital Mixing Console, coupled with a fleet of ULT loudspeakers, including the ULT15, ULT18S, and a ULT10 for center fill coverage.
