Lighting & Sound Services were recently asked to provide sound reinforcement for a private charity event, featuring an outdoor performance from musicians from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance, Greenwich. The challenge here was to provide subtle sound reinforcement for opera, which is not normally amplified, in an outdoor setting.
We provided a Midas M32 desk and Sennheiser condenser mics for distant micing with some subtle EQ and effects to bring the feel of opera to the grounds of the event. Modest monitoring was provided – just enough for the musicians to be confident in their performance whilst not being rock’n’roll.
The event was a great success; some photos below:
