EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J.—Founded in 1883 and now in its 128th season, The Metropolitan Opera is the vibrant home for talented singers, conductors, composers, orchestra musicians, and dancers from around the world. Known as the venue for the world’s greatest voices, The Met recently hosted the 85th birthday celebration of legendary singer, Tony Bennett. Singing at The Met was not only the singer’s birthday gift to himself, but to the sold-out crowd that flocked to the 3800-seat venue’s Lincoln Center address. Guest artists included Elton John, Aretha Franklin, and Alejandro Sanz.

ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township, N.J.) provided the audio necessary to reinforce the sound at The Met in order to achieve the live sound to which Mr. Bennett has become accustomed. A Yamaha PM5D-EX was the console of choice for long-time Bennett front of house engineer, Tom Young. Young, whose rider preference is a PM5D, said the 5D-EX more

SYMETRIX JUPITER JUMPS BACK IN TIME TO THE SET OF “THE GRADUATE”

thegraduate_church.JPG

LA VERNE, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 2011: The iconic 1967 film The Graduate ends with protagonist Benjamin Braddock (famously played by Dustin Hoffman) interrupting the wedding of his true love by banging on the church window from a loft at its rear and screaming her name, just as she is about to kiss her soon-to-be husband. The two elope, ditching the wedding guests and, we presume, society’s suffocating mores. The scene and a number of subsequent scenes of comedic homage (Bubble Boy, Wayne’s World 2) were shot at La Verne United Methodist in La Verne, California. However, for the parishioners of LVUM, such moments of celebrity are but fun anecdotes, and the real life and work of the church is like any other. And like so many other churches, LVUM was suffering from a terrible audio system (installed shortly after the filming of The Graduate!) and there was no video system more

lubbers_stadium.JPG

ALLENDALE, MICHIGAN – OCTOBER 2011: With a student body in excess of 24,000, Grand Valley State University (GVSU) in Allendale, Michigan is a major institution of higher education. Its football team is widely recognized as one of the fiercest competitors in the NCAA’s Division II, and it won the national championship in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006. It’s no surprise that football is a very big deal at GVSU, a fact reflected in the high-end accommodations of Lubbers Stadium, the school’s large (by Division II standards) football stadium. Its current capacity of 8,500 is regularly met and often wildly exceeded. At a home opener, over 14,000 fans crammed in to see the GVSU Lakers trounce Ferris State. When the school had finally had enough of Lubbers Stadium’s piecemeal audio system and the innumerable complaints it inspired, they hired ASCOM of Holland, Michigan more

API has the reputation and I don’t have to sell it. I can tell you that a lot of the young kids who come out of Pro Tools look at the board like it’s the most beautiful thing on earth.
