SPARS Legacy Award

The 33 year history of SPARS is the history of the recording studio, music and professional recording evolution in America. The two cannot be separated. Those early pioneers of recording and sound founded SPARS and were some of the industry’s most committed supporters. There have been so many talented and dedicated professionals who were there when it all started and who were an integral part of the growth and success of the recording industry.

For that reason, the SPARS Board of Directors has established a new annual award, the SPARS Legacy Award, to be given each year to an industry luminary who historically demonstrated outstanding leadership, vision and commitment to the recording studio movement in America and the professional recording craft in general.

The SPARS Board of Directors is honored to establish the SPARS Legacy Award, which is given each year in recognition of the significant contributions of those named below.

Congratulations to these awe-inspiring legends. All are true-life SPARS Legacies
