Soweto Gospel Choir
Not many choirs are double Grammy Award winners, have sung alongside U2, and performed at a FIFA world cup event … But the Soweto Gospel Choir is no ordinary choir. This multi-talented 24-piece has been entertaining audiences across the globe since 2007.
Carefully selected from churches in their namesake town, the Soweto Gospel Choir is out on the road between six and nine months each year.
FOH engineer, Helge Schlosser:
“On this show, it’s paramount to get the balance of the choir right. It has to sound big, so I use condensers in stereo pairs to create a bit of space and depth to the sound, but the problem we have always faced is feedback, because the stage is so loud, …
To remedy this, I opted to bring in a myMix [personal monitoring] system, which has saved me a lot of hassle, and has allowed me to get rid of some of the wedges and all of the backline. Beforehand, each band member had their own backline and wedge, and there were also wedges across the front for the choir and any soloists, but because I can DI analogue into the myMix, it’s changed everything; and furthermore, the ambient noise on stage has been reduced to an absolute minimum, so the feedback has gone.”
It’s proven to be a very reliable and flexible solution – a bit of a game-changer, in fact.
