If the concert lighting is “right” it is by far the largest single influence of how the audience reacts to the performance’s setting and staging.
Whether Bon Jovi, Robin Williams or a local garage band is appearing, every performance is influenced by the staging. When done right, the artistic staging is in perfect synch with the performance; enhancing the audience’s visual and auditory experience.
Concert lighting affords the greatest opportunity for the event’s designers to positively impact the first impression each member of the audience will experience. If the concert lighting is “right” it is by far the largest single influence of how the audience reacts to the performance’s setting and staging.
MSI’s 60+ years of experience coupled with some great in-house talent empowers us to create amazingly effective concert and theatre lighting. When your concert’s design incorporates exemplary lighting with complimentary décor, decorations, draping and crisp, true sound, the set and staging will be doing everything it can to enhance the audience’s enjoyment of the performance.
Concert lighting begins with an in-depth discussion with the concert’s organizer and artistic director. From that a basic concert lighting plan is created. Within a defined budget the plan will blend artistic elements with the realities of the concert’s setting.
The plan also includes the sequence and pacing that will occur during the performance itself … when and where certain lights are raised, lowered, directed and focused to complement what is occurring on the stage. The lights are then connected to the lighting control console and everything is checked to ensure it is operating properly. The final step is to rehearse the performance so that all the lighting cues can be established and practiced.
