Berks Jazz Fest general manager John Ernesto and Doug White are developing a schedule of special meet-and-greet artist appearances that will include experiencing music selections on a state-of-the-art audio system, featuring many selections by artists appearing at the jazz fest.

The Voice That Is, established in 2007, represents world class audio products including the internationally acclaimed TIDAL Audio speakers and electronics that deliver a listening experience that is natural, transparent and must be heard to be believed.

“To be involved with the Berks Jazz Fest, especially the 30th anniversary event, is really exciting for me,” said White. “I’ve been friends with people closely involved with the festival for many years.  And, as a huge fan of many of the artists — Gerald Albright, Brian Bromberg, Marcus Miller, to name a few.

“I really appreciate what the Berks Arts Council continues to do.  Being a former musician, the aim is to share my experience and ability to reproduce music in the home environment in the most realistic way. I want to give attendees of the Berks Jazz Fest an opportunity to experience something that I truly love and believe is really important.

“I find that most people don’t experience music in the best possible light in their homes. Ear buds and whole house systems simply don’t deliver the ultimate fidelity you can have in your home. For many, this would be an experience they may have never had before. This will be a great experience for the musicians too.  They will be able to hear how their recorded work is conveyed in its unaltered form from the listener’s perspective which I feel will further their art and ultimately provide an improved experience for their fans.

“The Berks Jazz Fest Listening Experience will provide yet another opportunity for me to share an accurate representation of the musician’s talents – uncolored, where sound-staging and real textures of the instruments are revealed.”

The Voice That Is configures ultimate high-end systems using TIDAL Audio speakers and electronics to reproduce recorded material in the most accurate way possible.

TIDAL Audio systems have been installed in private listening rooms of music lovers worldwide – and even a yacht. TIDAL Audio founded in 1999 and based in Hurth, Germany continues to receive world-wide accolades and recognition.

The Voice That Is is proud to be affiliated with such a remarkable organization.
