Doha, Qatar (March 7, 2005)–Sennheiser microphones were used at the wedding celebrations for Shaikh Tamim in Hamad Al Thani, Crown Prince of Qatar, son of His Highness Shaikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of Qatar. The 12-hour party, for the prince’s bride-to-be, featured a 45-piece Iraqi orchestra and a stage full of Sennheiser Evolution Series wired and RF microphones, as well as wireless personal monitor systems. Created, designed and produced by special event planners Colin Cowie Lifestyles of New York, the extravagant celebrations took place in the capital city of Doha.
“There was nothing on the stage but Sennheiser,” reported Scott Scherban, project manager and audio crew chief for Delicate Productions of Camarillo, CA, who provided the event production systems. An octagonal stage, located at the focus of a 66,000 sq. ft. semi-circular area constructed on the palace gardens especially for the event, featured Sennheiser Evolution Series e614 condenser microphones for the string section, along with e602, e604, e609, e865 and e903 instrument mics, as well as six Evolution Wireless SKM365G2 RF handheld vocal mics, four ew300IEMG2 wireless personal monitor setups, and thirty Sennheiser wired headsets.
