Sydney, Australia (May 3, 2007)–Audio Telex, an Australian pro audio hire and installation company, recently supplied a Turbosound Aspect system for a high-profile charity dinner, Forever Green. Held at the Horden Pavilion, Sydney, the event was held for the Steve Waugh Foundation, an organization set up by the Australian cricketer, whose main aim is to raise money and provide support for children who have a disease or illness that doesn’t meet the criteria of other charitable organizations.
A new Turbosound Aspect PA was used for a recent charity event, Forever Green, in Sydney, Australia.Audio Telex loaned the system to the event’s production company Norwest Productions ; the front of house system comprised nine flown TA-890H mid-highs per side, nine ground-stacked TA-890L subs per side, with a center block of six TSW-218 subs. Front-fill was provided by two Aspect Wide TA-500s per side, with two self-powered TQ-445DPs in the centre. The monitor system used TQ-315 wedges with TXD-215 subs and TXD-121 tops as DJ monitors. “The system worked very well. We had nothing but compliments about the sound,” says Dave Rennie, Norwest Productions General Manager.
In order to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, and therefore encourage more support for the Foundation, the event featured a diverse array of material including speeches, a performance from comedian Vince Sorrenti, a catwalk show (featuring the latest fashion designs by Collette Dinnigan) and a number of live music performances from artists including Leo Sayer, Australian Idol winner Damian Leith, chamber music combo the Benaud Trio and the Australian Girls (Qantas) Choir.
