University of Washington Graduations
Since 2001 Morgan Sound has been providing audio services for the Commencement Exercises held at Husky Stadium. Servicing over 50,000 attendees and 5,000+ students, we have delivered consistent, clear audio to every seat in the stadium using our JBL Model 4889 Vertec Line Array system.
The event involves audio systems for the main stadium, including the student seating area on the playing field, and the line-up areas situated indoors at Dempsey Field and outdoors on the East Practice field.
The University of Washington Office of Commencements choreographs this event and includes live music performed by the UW Wind Ensemble, speeches by the university’s president and the president of the Board of Regents, in addition to noted dignitaries and graduating students.
Morgan Sound uses custom towers 45 feet in height to position the speaker systems appropriately to gain optimal coverage and gain-before-feedback in order to clearly transmit the messages and graduating roll calls. The event takes place, rain or shine, every year in June.
