On June 13, Trebas Institute Ontario’s Audio Engineering students embarked on an educational field trip to Long & McQuade, a renowned retail and rental outlet specializing in audio engineering and concert sound equipment.

This field trip provided students with a unique opportunity to gain practical knowledge, insights into the industry, and establish connections with audio professionals.

Coordinated and supervised by Audio Engineering instructor Trevor Shelton, the trip featured a comprehensive and educational lecture by the store manager, covering topics such as producing and budgeting events.

Students also received a tour of the store, showcasing the wide range of audio products and software available to performers, musicians, beatmakers, engineers and producers.

Trebas Institute Ontario’s Academic Operations Manager, Kalman Szegvary, expressed his excitement about the trip, stating that, "This experience offered our students the chance to network with professionals, learn how to collaborate with others, and think critically about budgeting and producing professional events."

Long and McQuade has a longstanding relationship with Trebas Institute Ontario, having hired graduates since the early 2000s, and plans to continue nurturing this relationship with events like this.
