Professional sound reinforcement since 1974

Professional sound reinforcement since 1974

Myrna's career in sound reinforcement began in 1974. She worked with Boston area sound companies until 1983, at which time she began her own business. Her approach to providing sound systems comes from having more than thirty years of live sound engineering experience in a variety of settings. She has engineered at Carnegie Hall in New York City and Symphony Hall in Boston - in addition to other premier venues across the country. She has also engineered many corporate events where spoken word was the most important component. From humble beginnings using an EV entertainer system and a 1968 VW bus, MJA has become the finest audiophile music and performance company in the Boston area.
