Bose RoomMatch Array Loudspeakers Help Give New Life to Taylor Chapel
Historic house of worship rises from a devastating fire two years ago and returns with a Bose RoomMatch® sound system that assures musical clarity and speech intelligibility

Guitar Center Pro Guides Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church into Its Digital Era
Guitar Center Pro Guides Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church into Its Digital Era
Large Houston church acquires two Studer digital audio consoles with GC Pro managing a complex transaction from initial planning through installation and commissioning
The Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church has been among the Houston area’s largest houses of worship for over 60 years. However, through most of that time, it was also a very analog institution, with a pair of analog consoles used for front-of-house mixing and to route audio to congregation overflow and post-production areas. As of this year, however, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church has entered its own digital age, with the acquisition of two Studer digital consoles, purchased through Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the business-to-business (B2B) division of Guitar Center providing highly customized service for professional accounts. GC Pro managed the sale of a Studer Vista 1 desk, which was installed earlier this year, used to route audio to a number of locations around the church campus. A Studer Vista V console intended as the church’s new FOH console was also installed and commissioned at the beginning of the summer. GC Pro’s Houston-based team of account managers and sales associates handled both transactions.
