Since space is limited to 12 participants per session, WFX visitors are urged to pre-register for the session of their choice by visiting here.

The sessions will be conducted by ChamSys USA Director Philip Watson, a lighting designer who has toured the world working on numerous concerts, musicals and theatrical productions including the Mark Morris Dance Group, Hello, Dolly! National Tour and Circus Flora (Spoleto Festival U.S.A). Each session will cover a wide range of topics, including: the essentials of console layout; patching, recording and editing cues; and applying effects using MagicVis.

“Our goal is to take the mystery out of programming to give designers and programmers greater control over the lighting at their churches,” said Watson. “Becoming familiar with your console is essential if you want to make the best use possible of lighting at your house of worship.”
