United Kingdom (August 13, 2012)—DPA Microphones captured a recent classical music concert at Leeds Castle in the United Kingdom featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The show included performances by the Royal Philharmonic orchestra, conducted by John Rigby, the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the Military Wives Choir. Soloists James Edwards and Claire Rutter also performed during the concert.
Sound, lighting and PA specialists SRD Group provided all of the equipment for the concert, including a large selection of DPA microphones, which it leased from sound engineer Ian Barfoot.
“DPA microphones were ideal for this project because they always deliver fantastic audio quality and are very rugged, which means you can put them through the mill without having to worry about them,” Barfoot explains.
Over 60 DPA microphones were sued during the show.
Stuart Roberts, Managing Director of SRD Group, noted, "The weather did create more work in terms of getting equipment on and off the site, but the sound quality on the night was as stunning as ever and it was a really wonderful evening for everyone who attended."
