Yamaha Consoles Celebrate Christmas
Each year, as the Salvation Army gears up for one of its busiest annual periods, the Christian charity puts on a special Christmas carol concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall. This year’s sold-out, multi-artist event saw production company b+h relying on Yamaha and Dante.
Although brass bands tend to feature heavily in the Salvation Army stereotype, the Christmas carol concert features a range of different performers. This year’s event took place on 24th November with a cast numbering over 150 – including choirs, a contemporary praise band, readings and a guest performance by prominent supporter Shakin’ Stevens.
“It’s a traditional carol concert, but on a grand – and far more technically complex – scale,” says Sam Lynam, business development and project manager at b+h. “As well as managing the live sound production, we assist the Salvation Army’s recording and broadcast partner World of Sound with a full multitrack recording, which is later transmitted on BBC Radio London and the charity’s web site.”
