Lehman College Multimedia Center
Lehman College of the City University of New York has opened a new 28,000 sq. ft. Multimedia Center. The facility establishes Lehman as one of the most technologically advanced schools in the CUNY system and puts the College in the forefront of multimedia facilities in the region.
The Multimedia Center at Lehman College is a two-story, state-of-the-art facility that serves both Lehman students and New York City's artistic community. The custom-built center has an acoustically designed recording studio, audio and video production control rooms, eight editing suites — one of which is enhanced for audio sweetening — student news room, media conversion room, graphics room, conference room and 5 'technology-enhanced' classrooms.
Lehman sees the Multimedia Center as a model for multi-use educational facilities; a magnet for dynamic learning and community activity; a gateway for students aspiring to careers in journalism, communications and media production. Graduates of Lehman's multimedia programs will impact the community at local and national levels, enhancing media production in the region and bringing fresh perspectives and a diversity of experience to their fields.
Conversations with Composers Join us at the Multi Media Center located on the Lehman College campus. Gabriela Lena Frank, John Kaefer and Steve Mackey will be discussing their works with Tania León and Molly Morkoski in front of a live studio audience. This hour long broadcast will include Gabriela Lena Frank's Sonata Andina for solo piano, Steve Mackey's Cadenza from his recent Piano Concerto, and John Kaefer's newly commissioned Nocturne.
The Bacon Brothers
Sponsored by Lehman's City and the Humanities Program, the Bacon Brothers came to the College, along with pianist Joe Mennonna, for a live performance and recording session in our studios. They participated in a lively question and answer session with our students. Michael Bacon is a Distinguished Lecturer at Lehman College. The objective of the City and the Humanities program is to enhance the cultural life of the campus and community.
Take 4,000 feet of cable, 10 cameras, one mobile television studio, one steadicam, HMI stage lighting, one jib, one really long zoom lens, 4 laptops and a 15-member student and intern crew, and what is the result? A successful video recording and broadcast of the 44th Annual Lehman College Graduation.
