DPA Makes An Impact At The GNC Awards In Beirut

A large selection of DPA microphones were deployed at the first Gibran National Committee Annual Awards Ceremony, which took place in Beirut to honour and promote distinguished Lebanese innovators.

More than 60 musicians, 40 choristers and two presenters took part in the event and every one of them was miked with a DPA microphone.

Sound engineer Roger Bou Farhat, head of Beirut-based rental company Loud N Clear, supplied all of the audio equipment for the Awards ceremony. He says: “I specified DPA microphones because they always deliver fantastic results. As this was a highly prestigious event, the audio had to be first class and I knew that DPA would be up to the challenge.”

DPA d:vote™ 4099 instrument microphones were used to mic the entire orchestra and also the Guy Manukian band, which performed at the ceremony. For the band’s piano, high hat and oriental percussion instruments Roger Bou Farhat used DPA 2011 Twin Diaphragm directional microphones, while for the choir he used 12 DPA 4011A cardioid microphones, which were chosen for their ability to deliver a natural, accurate sound with extremely low distortion. The microphone line-up was completed with two DPA 4098H supercardioid microphones located on the presenters’ podium. The presenters also wore DPA d:fine™ single ear headset microphones.

The Gibran National Committee Annual Awards aims to uphold the cultural values of the Lebanese philosopher, writer and poet Gibran Khalil Gibran. 12 recipients were honoured at the ceremony, which took place at the Casino du Liban in Beirut.

“The Awards ceremony was a huge success and the DPA microphones all performed flawlessly,” Roger Bou Farhat says. “As this is now an annual event I am confident that DPA microphones will be playing a big part in next year’s ceremony, too.”
