AUTHOR: Inavate

Allen & Heath was chosen to supply its iLive digital mixing system for a Mass held during an official visit by the Pope to Brno. Audio was handled by PA company, Audioblue, which selected the iLive system comprising an iDR10 MixRack and iLive-144 control surface, and an RCF speaker system.

The event was attended by 120,000 members of the public and VIP’s including the Czech President, Václav Klaus. The ceremony was held in the grounds of the city’s airport, and included seating for the public worshippers, a VIP stage for the Pope and dignitaries, and a second stage for musicians.

Audio was managed by PA company, Audioblue, which selected an iLive system, comprising an iDR10 MixRack and iLive-144 Control Surface, and an RCF speaker system. Audio requirements needed to cover FOH sound, including three delay zones, as well as monitors for the VIP stage and the musicians on the second stage. Due to architectural restrictions, FOH position was located next to the music stage at monitor position.

The day-long event began with mass held by the Pope, followed by a musical programme of traditional folk bands and choirs, including the Olomouc Garisson military brass band, Hradišťan South Moravian traditional Dulcimer band, and the Kyjovánek South Moravian traditional children’s folk group.
