TSDCA Response to Coronavirus COVID-19


This is a challenging time for all of us.

TSDCA’s Executive Board has been working continuously to create new initiatives that can support our members as well as the entire theatre-sound community. This page will be continuously updated to report new information on how TSDCA can serve you, as well as information on how to navigate life as a working artist during this crisis.


TSDCA initiatives include:

  • Every current member will receive 3 free months of their membership on top of their current membership.
  • Anyone joining TSDCA during this time will get three free months of membership added to their first year.
  • Launched Facebook page: Student Sound Design Connection – this Facebook page is for members and non-members, and is designed to consolidate efforts to support students from across the country who have been displaced from in-person education. If you are interested in joining the page as a teacher or student, please email us at For more information, please click here.
  • Weekly communication from the Executive Board via e-blast/newsletter.
