Symphony On The Prairie Meeting & Concert

The Central Indiana Section of the Audio Engineering Society is pleased to announce a much anticipated event, our August 6, 2011 meeting, which features a concert systems tour of Conner Prairie with P. Alan Alford followed by an optional concert featuring the Music of Billy Joel and Elton John. All members are encouraged to attend and bring guests!

Because this is such a popular event we ask that you please RSVP whether you intend to attend the talk and the concert, or just the talk.

Also, because Conner Prairie is a popular historical site there are several important details worth mentioning.
