Greenwich High School

With approximately 2,650 students – more than 1,400 of whom are enrolled in music and theatre courses – Connecticut’s Greenwich High School had outgrown an old auditorium with poor acoustics, poor sightlines, and other shortcomings that dates back to 1970.

In response, a massive expansion project has given the school a new Performing Arts Center featuring a 1,325-seat, 35,000-ft auditorium with a proper stage, orchestra pit, and other facilities-including an extensive Renkus-Heinz VARIAi loudspeaker system.

The Events Centre

The Events Centre reckons to be the area’s premier performing arts and conference centre on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Maintaining this position, the venue recently completed an audio upgrade, including the installation of an Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system.

The complex was in need of a new audio console to manage the demanding audio requirements, and selected the dLive S3000 Control Surface with DM32 MixRack and accompanying DX32 expander racks.

Goldcrest Dean Street Theatre 1

Newly-opened, Goldcrest Post Production’s Dean Street Theatre 1 is a purpose-built Dolby Atmos mixing theatre in central London. Central to its audio operation is an Avid Pro Tools S6 modular control surface supplied by HHB Communications’ Scrub division.

The Dean Street Theatre 1 control surface is a 32-fader M40 configuration, integrated with an AMS Neve DFC3D digital mixing console. Custom furniture enables the number of Pro Tools S6 or DFC3D modules to be increased or reduced depending on the mixer’s needs. For example, the mixer could have more Pro Tools S6 faders than DFC3D faders, vice versa or a balance.

Rockin’1000 – That’s Live

In May 2015, a small band of Foo Fighters fans from Cesena had tired of waiting for their heroes to add the central Italian state of Romagna to their tour itinerary – they hadn’t vitied since 1997, and had no plans to return.

Led by Fabio Zaffagnini, the friends decided to stage a live performance of the Foo Fighters’ ‘Learn To Fly’ with 1,000 musicians playing simultaneously – and to film the performance, and send the video to the band. ‘If you really want something, you have to be ready to beg,’ Zaffagnini  says. ‘Its better if there are 1,000 people behind you.’
