Lawo Consoles Deliver Audio For Annual Bastille Day Concert

News Image
Lawo's mixing consoles have helped deliver audio for France's annual Bastille Day concert.

More than 500,000 Concert de Paris spectators at the foot of the Eiffel Tower were treated to one of the largest classical musical events in the world, followed by a traditional firework display.

The show featured the National Symphony Orchestra and the Choir of Radio France, along with internationally renowned soloists.

With help from Lawo's setup the concert was later relayed to TV viewers and radio listeners in France and beyond.

For the central celebrations on the Champ du Mars next to the Eiffel Tower, Radio France used an mc²96, Lawo's flagship audio production console, for ultimate FOH mixing performance. Four hands operated the large mc²96: those of Stéphane Desmons took care of the orchestra, while Alexandre Martin was in charge of the choirs and solo singers. On the stage, the monitoring position was equipped with an mc²36 operated by Stephane Touvenin. In Radio France's OB Truck n.5, an mc²66 was in the expert hands of Laurent Fracchia for the live broadcast of the event on France Inter and France 2, the main public radio and TV stations in France.

"The super comprehensive interface and advanced multi-user features of the mc²96 gave us the opportunity to reduce the quantity of equipment we needed, while increasing the working capabilities of our sound engineers," said Bruno Lompech, head of the Radio France Sound Reinforcement Department.

Joffrey Heyraud, Lawo's Sales Director for France, added: "The show was flawless and gave us a new opportunity to demonstrate the power of our solutions in such large-scale events."
