New York (April 2, 2007)--Toronto-based PA Plus recently provided a JBL VerTec system for the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame 4th Annual Gala, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre's John Bassett Theatre. The event aired nationally in Canada on CBC TV on March 5.
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Annual Gala brings together a who's who of the Canadian music industry, who assemble to pay their respects to Canada's songwriting greats. This year's event included the induction of Joni Mitchell into the Hall of Fame and featured performances by James Taylor and Michael Bublé. The audio system for the event included 16 VerTec VT4889 full-size line array elements and four VT4880 arrayable subwoofers. The system was powered by Crown I-Tech amplifiers with Harman Pro's HiQnet System Architect software for remote control and monitoring.
It wasn't the first time PA Plus has brought its JBL rig into the John Bassett Theatre. "We're very familiar with the venue so we know what components and arrangements work best in combination with one another," said Mark Radu, systems engineer for PA Plus. "The system performed flawlessly, and we received very positive feedback from the performers and event producers," he said.
