London (May 7, 2010)—On Saturday, movie musical mainstay Julie Andrews will be heard through a Meyer Sound PA when she returns to the stage at London’s O2 Arena.
The production, The Gift of Music—an Evening with Julie Andrews, will use a Meyer Sound system provided by Capital Sound; Andrews, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Ian Fraser will perform highlights from Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music and The King and I, among others.
The concert will mark Andrews’s first performance on a UK stage in 30 years. “To perform once again in my homeland on the London stage will be a wonderful moment— it is where it all began for me, and I am so excited to be able to share a brand new work with audiences,” says Andrews in a press release on the O2 Arena’s website.
Capital Sound, the London sound provider that has supported acts like Il Divo and Kylie Minogue, will return to the O2 with a Meyer Sound system based on 36 Milo line array loudspeakers and 16 700-HP subwoofers. The system also includes side flown arrays of Mica and M’elodie line array loudspeakers, and groundstacked M’elodie, UPM-1P, JM-1P arrayable loudspeakers, and additional 700-HP subwoofers. John Pellowe, Meyer Sound’s Constellation project director and sound engineer for the late Luciano Pavarotti, will perform FOH duties for the concert.
