CRAS places great emphasis on our relationships with the recording and audio community at large.

At CRAS we invite a wide variety of audio professionals to lecture on-site. Our roster of guest speakers ranges from manufacturers, engineers, studio managers, live sound professionals, educators, graduates, and more.

The CRAS guest lecture series provides feedback on what’s going on in the industry so our directors and instructors can reflect the latest developments in the classroom. And, it gives our students a chance to see firsthand what it takes to be an audio professional, affording them the opportunity to network with those practicing what they wish to accomplish.

Below are some of the CRAS Guest Lectures.
