Springtree Productions recently provided audio, video and lighting for Brightstone’s annual fundraising event. We’ve worked with them for many years on their Music that Touches the Heart Songwriters’ Night. This year was marked the 10th year for the event and it needed to be special. The night started with a silent auction followed by musical performances from gifted artists including Amy Grant, Trace Atkins, Wanderlust, and The Shadow Boxers.
We were on site at Liberty Hall of the Factory at Franklin the day before getting equipment set up and ready for the big day. For this event, we provided an Allen & Heath iLive T112 digital console along with ten JBL VRX Line Array Speakers (five per side) and two JBL SRX728S subs. We used Shure SM58 microphones for vocals and SM57 microphones for instruments. The only exception was a Shure KSM9 microphone, which we used for Amy Grant’s vocals. For lighting, we wrapped trusses up in white fabric with an LED uplight inside for a nice effect. Uplighting was also used along the brick walls and columns in the room. A special gobo of Brightstone’s logo was made for the event and several lights were added to make it a nice focal point. Springtree ran the sound and provided stage hands to keep things running smoothly.
In the end, the event was a huge success. Liberty Hall was packed and everyone had a blast raising money for a great cause. Brightstone is an organization that provides a supportive and engaging environment for adults with special needs. Many of their students attended the event and enjoyed going back stage to meet their favorite musical celebrities.
At Springtree, we are committed to providing quality equipment, engineering expertise and attention to details so our clients can enjoy a successful evening.
