Diedra Smith (Sound) owes her interest in sound tech’ing to her husband Mike’s membership in Chattanooga’s big band Sweet Georgia Sound. When the band needed a new sound person, she volunteered to learn so that she could take part in the fun performances he’d been enjoying. Since then, she’s spent four years as the official “Sound Chick” for SGS and is acting as chairman of the Sound Committee for their church as well. It was also Mike’s participation in community theater that led Diedra to work with the Chattanooga Theatre Centre, and now with the Chattanooga State Repertory Theatre. She thanks Mike for the inspiration, and thanks God for the chance to share a production with these incredibly talented performers.
