SOUND SYSTEM
The installed sound system at TCAN was designed to deliver state-of-the-art sound to the listener in any seat and excellent monitoring for the performer.  The sound system is maintained by a house sound engineer.  TCAN can provide a professional audio engineer to mix FOH/monitors or performers are invited to bring their own audio engineer, if desired, who will be supported by TCAN staff.
