Orbital Sound’s popular “Mixing Musicals” training course returns to London at the end of August.

Orbital Sound’s sell-out “Mixing Musicals” training course returns on 27-28 August this year, combining theory, practice and a West End show visit within its popular two-day format. Designed to help aspiring theatre sound operators take their show mixing skills to the next level, the two-day course focuses on the practical skills and theory behind best-practice FOH mixing requirements of musicals. Participants will be taken through every stage of the process – from the rehearsal room to setting up a desk in its base state, including the theory, introduction to why line-by-line mixing is so important, and what happens when you don't do it. Hands-on experience is an essential aspect of the course, which includes a trip to the West End for a behind-the-scenes look at a show and the chance to talk to the sound team. Numbers are strictly limited to 24 – with the course running at Orbital's Brixton training centre. Further information and booking details can be found at
