Students in class and in individual study build and design loudspeakers, including home speakers, studio monitors, and sound reinforcement speakers. This process covers the basics of driver integration, cabinet tuning and coloration, voicing, directivity, SPL capability, bass extension, distortion and transient accuracy. Students have worked on the monitors in use in our studio, sound lab, and black box theatre as well as building loudspeakers for their home studios. Contact Christopher Plummer to get involved.

Former members and alumni of Michigan Tech’s Varsity Singers/Jazz Singers gathered as part of the Michigan Technological University 2011 Alumni Reunion August 4-6. Stephen Brown and Lisa Pekrul Lange are spearheaded the plan, working with retired director Milton Olsson, and with Brenda Rudiger and her Michigan Tech Alumni Relations staff. Together, they compiled a not-quite-complete list of names of past Singers, but the list keeps expanding as word about spread. Contact Doc at firstname.lastname@example.org to update your contact info and to advise about other Singers that you know. So far, there are over 175 names on the list.
