Continental Air Show Productions Pumps Star Spangled Sailabration with Community

Baltimore, MD, July 2012…  On the morning of September 14, 1814, Major George Armistead signaled the American victory in the war of 1812 by raising the first American flag over Fort McHenry. The incident inspired poet Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner, which would eventually be declared this country’s national anthem.

On June 13, the city of Baltimore kicked off a three-year national commemoration of the events of 1812 with the Star Spangled Sailabration, a seven-day festival of concerts, celebrations, fireworks, an international parade of ships, and a rousing air show featuring the Blue Angels.

To provide audio support for the Blue Angels air show, Continental Air Show Productions selected a dozen Community R.5HPT loudspeakers. As CASP’s Dave Olmstead of observes, the Community R-Series is unequalled in power, coverage, and intelligibility. “Obviously, the biggest challenge in providing sound for a Blue Angels air show is competing with the ambient noise of the jets themselves,” he says. “The Community R-Series has been our first choice for our shows over the years, because it’s the only loudspeaker that can provide the levels we need, for the very large coverage areas we have to address, and do it with an exceptionally high degree of intelligibility.” And they’re rugged enough to withstand CASP’s grueling schedule of back-to-back shows, from Maine to Spokane and back again.

“Fort McHenry is where Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner,” Olmstead adds. “So to be able to hear the song performed at this historical site with the clarity that our Community R-Series speakers provide was extremely moving, not only for CASP, but for the thousands in attendance.”
