Proposal Summary
More and more, students and faculty are asking for exotic lighting for their performances in Davis Concert Hall.  And it has becoming more than the existing lighting equipment can provide.  (We just had to borrow lighting from the theater department for the Chancellors convocation.)  There have been lighting requests for the following types of events;
-Student recitals
-Student end of semester and graduation concerts
-Faculty recitals and concerts
-Choir concerts
-Jazz band concerts
-Summer session concerts
-Fairbanks Summer Art Fest concerts
-Jazzfest concerts
-Chancellors convocation

Students, from a performance standpoint, will benefit by a more accurate portrayal of their presentation just because of lighting.  The new lighting instruments will allow color changes to reflect the changing moods of their performance.  From an audience standpoint, students will experience a more thorough and enjoyable presentation. 

These lighting instruments, individually, are capable of an almost infinite variety of colors and can be changed at will during a performance.

Justification for any personnel or supplies requested:
Describe who will benefit in terms of numbers of students and classes:
There are at any time 50 to 60 students enrolled in the music department.  They all have an opportunity to take advantage of these lighting instruments.  At any given performance, there could be between 20 and 500 students in attendance.
How does your proposal fit into UAF strategic goals and objectives?:
In is in the best interest of any university that has an interest in excellence to be technologically viable.  This includes support systems that include audio, video and lighting for their performance venue.  These lighting instruments are a step in that direction
Outline the implementation schedule and staff responsible for the implementation and oversight:
These lighting instruments use approximately 10% of the energy of the instruments they would be replacing.

The implementation and oversight would be done by Gary Toth.
Please specify the building (with room numbers, if appropriate) where the technology will be stored, installed or used:
They would be stored in the music building in one of the storage rooms close to the Davis hall stage
The cost is limited to the initial purchase.  There is little maintenance on these units as LED lights last an extremely long time.  They will easily blend with our existing lighting system with no hardware or software changes necessary.
