St. Vincent and Mayer Hawthorne at Lang Performing Arts Center
January 22nd, 2011 brought St. Vincent and Mayer Hawthorne to the Lang Performing Arts Center at Swarthmore College. The LPAC helps to integrate the arts into the curriculum and is a hub of campus activity, able to host multiple events at one time.
Clear Sound provided audio, staging, lighting and backline for the event, arriving a day in advance to beat the forecast of snow and make sure the show would go on.
St. Vincent, a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, performed songs from her critically acclaimed album Actor. Mayer Hawthorne, another multi-instrumentalist as well as singer, producer, and songwriter, performed second with his band the Country.
When Hatboro-Horsham School District needed to upgrade the audio system in the high school’s auditorium, they chose Clear Sound to install the new system. Milt Kunz, theater director and project coordinator, said the installation team’s “greatest skills were the ability to listen to our conversations to pick out the priorities and needs of our house.
Each year, all over the country, more than 300,000 people get together with friends, family and co-workers for the MS Walk sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Walks raise money for research, provide services to those affected by MS and to raise awareness. And every year, in Philadelphia, Clear Sound is there to provide audio support for the event.
The Griffin Complex at Gwynedd Mercy University is home to the Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball teams. The Complex hosted exciting competitions and distinguished graduations, but the attendees had a hard time hearing what was happening.
Intimate, natural-sounding dialogue in a sold-out theater. Crisp, intelligible announcements in a packed stadium. Exhilarating lights and music at an outdoor summer festival. A stirring sermon reaching every corner of a cavernous church.
Sounds like the work of Clear Sound - the Delaware Valley's best full-service audio, video and lighting company.
