In Memoriam: Michael Alboher, Video Engineer, 1967 – 2021

Stage Directions • Industry News • March 25, 2021

The WorldStage family is saddened to report the passing of Michael “Mikey A” Alboher, on March 24th, 2021. Alboher’s long tenure as a video engineer began at Scharff Weisberg Inc in 1994 and he remained a company stalwart until the very end. A friend to many in the corporate event community and a constant source of stability in a volatile environment, Alboher excelled at his profession and was always sought after for the toughest assignments.

An inveterate prankster, Alboher could enliven the most interminable backstage sessions but he was also the most generous of technical experts, always willing to share his technical wisdom and experience with others. His passion for the profession was only exceeded by his passion for his two sons, his beloved pups, and his time spent out on his boat on a summer day in the Great South Bay. He will be missed by us all.
