Katherine Jenkins performed a special one off concert in front of a packed Birmingham NIA on Saturday evening, as part of the opening celebrations of the 100th Rotary International Conference.
Together with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the international mezzo-soprano delighted the audience with a selection of classic arias, tracks from her new album and a rendition of 'We'll Meet Again.'
For the performance Stage Electrics provided two 6 x 4 metre LED screens, DMX controlled Chameleon LED Starcloth, over 100 moving lights including Martin MAC 700's, MAC 600's and Varilite VL2000's. Lighting designer for the night was Neil Tremmell who used a GrandMA control system. Stage Electrics also specified an L-Acoustic V-Dosc line array system for the performance audio.
The 100th Rotary International Convention is a week long event held in Birmingham, likely to attract 30,000 Rotary Club members from across the globe.
