hoover-entertainment‘Tis the season of gathering, reflecting, remembering, sharing and receiving the long-awaited Lakeside Chautauqua Calendar of Events brochure in the mail.

As we enjoy the changing autumn weather and scenery, Lakeside staff is hard at work finalizing next summer’s roster of preachers, lecturers and performers. It can be an arduous process, especially with the evening entertainment at Hoover Auditorium, choosing what will fit into Lakesiders’ interests, Lakeside’s budget and Hoover’s technological capabilities.

Everyone who has experienced an evening in Hoover Auditorium can likely think of some performer they would love to see on that stage, but oftentimes there are obstacles to bringing certain artists and groups to Lakeside. One of the issues most easily remedied is that of Hoover’s outdated technological systems.

hoover-community-worshipIn response to this increasing problem, the centerpiece project of this year’s #GivingTuesday initiative will be funding upgrades for Hoover Auditorium’s sound and lights.

“Upgrading the sound and lighting in Hoover Auditorium is critical to meet guests’ expectations,” said Shirley Stary, Senior V.P. of Programming. “Every year it becomes harder to schedule Hoover entertainment due to the antiquated technical equipment. Ted Hough and his crew work their magic every night to pull off performances under less-than-ideal circumstances. The new equipment will enable us to bring in more well-known artists and produce a better concert or program. Thank you in advance to everyone who supports this project.”
