Situated within the grounds of Windsor Castle is St. George's School, a preparatory school that educates close to 400 boys and girls. Originally founded to provide choristers for the Choir of St George's Chapel, this prestigious institution was the setting for an end-of-term celebration culminating in a live music concert.
There were performances from all of the school's world-renowned choirs, as well as the school's chamber orchestra which played a number of classical pieces.
Our job was to provide the outdoor stage to house all of the performers and support the event with production services, including PA, lighting, and audio visual equipment to ensure that the concert ran smoothly.
So without further ado, let's tell you about this end-of-year celebration and our role in making it a resounding success.
Outdoor Stages Supplies Event Production Equipment and Outdoor Stage to School Event in Windsor
The concert happens every year, but this was our first involvement. It's an end-of-term celebration at St. George's School in Windsor that celebrates the end of the school year, honours students leaving the school, and features performances from the world-renowned choirs and the chamber orchestra. It takes place outdoors, on the school's playing fields, which are nestled in the grounds of the imposing Windsor Castle.
The school approached us to provide an outdoor stage that was big enough to accommodate all the performers and provide supporting event production services to bring the stage production to life.
So let's give you an in-depth run-down of the equipment supplied and services rendered to this fantastic occasion.
Outdoor Stages Provides Full Festival Stage Production to St. George's School
The brief was simple; to provide a stunning outdoor stage production that would enhance the surroundings of Windsor Castle and be big enough to accommodate an entire school choir and chamber orchestra.
Our 11m x 9m outdoor arc roof festival stage was the perfect solution. The stage is large enough to accommodate as many as 25 performers, making it ideal for choirs and orchestras. It's also an excellent choice for open-air concerts, with the striking white canopy providing a dramatic backdrop for the performers.
The stage was set up on the school's playing fields and was complete with a full sound and lighting package featuring our J series d&b audiotechnik outdoor PA system, which included line arrays, stage monitors, and a whole host of speakers. We also supplied both wired and wireless microphones and balanced the sound through our Midas M32 digital mixing console.
The lighting system comprised of LED PAR can wash lights, moving heads, and LED uplighters, creating a stunning lighting display that brought the stage to life. Since the focus was on the performances rather than any visual effects, we kept the lighting simple but effective.
We also supplied an LED screen flown from one of our purpose-built truss systems attached to the side of the stage. This setup provided the audience with a clear view of the stage, even if they were sitting towards the back of the field.
All in all, it was a fantastic evening of music and celebration, and we were delighted to be a part of it. The school organisers thanked us for our help in making the event a success, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
