We're back for more with the Director of Lighting at the UNCSA School Of The Arts Design and Production Department!  This time, we discuss an exciting project that serves the area around UNCSA, as well as the lighting students themselves: the Winston–Salem Light Project.  Students create major architectural lighting installations on landmark buildings and in other spaces, and in the process, are introduced to an entirely different part of the business from performance lighting.

We discussed Norman's professional career: his work on Broadway, in regional theater, on corporate events, and for opera, including his work during the summer at the Princeton Festival.  We also had a chance to discuss his thoughts on the business itself, and where it is headed.  We are immensely thankful that he was able to spend so much time with us, and thankful that you continue to download and listen!
