Athens, Greece (May 5, 2005)–The Southeast Asian tsunami has inspired acts of charity around the world, and Greece is no exception. Hellenic Radio & Television organization (H.R.T.), the public national network of Greece, recently held a large charity concert at the Olympic Basketball Court in Marousi, Athens with 40 Greek singers backed by H.R.T.’s Contemporary Music Symphony Orchestra.
A number of technical providers worked together to make the event happen, each providing a piece of the technical puzzle. To whit, audio supplier Enttech was on hand, making good use of a McCauley loudspeaker system powered by Lab.gruppen fp6400 amplifiers, all controlled by Lake Contours. A total of 16 Monarch MLA3 were hung on each side of the stage, bolstered by eight EV X-Line subs per side. Meanwhile, McCauley M.Line and MS1 subs were used to cover the sides of the stage, and frontfill duties were handled by a selection of Nexo PS15 speakers.
Midas consoles were used at both FOH and monitor positions, with a Heritage 3000 and Heritage 2000 at the house mix position, and an XL250 and a Crest LMX at stageside. Outboard gear used on the production included units from Yamaha, Klark Teknik, Lexicon and TC Electronic. Mics on hand included AKG, wireless Sennheiser SKM5000s, DPA, Neumann, Schoepps and Shure.
