CHAUVET Professional Helps Transform Historic “Scopes Trial Courthouse” For Tokens Special

In Install News, Web Articles by tfwm

tokens-afterGreg Persinger of Vivid Illumination has been involved in quite a few lighting projects over the past 20 years, but it’s safe to say that none were quite like his recent work at the Rhea County Courthouse in Dayton,Tokens-b4 Tennessee. Nothing about this event was “ordinary” — from the venue (site of the famous Scopes Monkey Trial), to the load-in process (gear had to be lugged up 2.5 flights of stairs), to the presence of actual prison inmates (who were at the courthouse for hearings) during setup. Nevertheless, Persinger was able to create a stunning and transformative lighting design thanks to the standout work of his team and a collection of LED color rendering fixtures from CHAUVET Professional.

NEW HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH BELIEVES IN ASHLY

In Install News by tfwm

New_Hope_Baptist_InteriorFounded in 1934 by a small collection of the faithful who opened up their living rooms every Sunday in the bustling Michigan town of Grand Rapids, New Hope Baptist Church has grown to a congregation of over 800 active members. To better accommodate its members, the church recently underwent a comprehensive renovation of its 750-seat sanctuary and associated overflow and ancillary use rooms. A new sound system centered on Ashly Audio processing, amplification, and user control is a centerpiece of the project and gives New Hope congregants exceptional intelligibility for spoken word, along with musical transcendence for the New Hope band and praise choir. Critically, the Ashly gear came in at a price point that allowed the church to meet its needs reliably, without breaking the project’s budget. Pro Audio Inc., of nearby Grandville, Michigan designed and installed the system for New Hope Baptist Church.

Central Baptist Church, Americus, GA Gets a Total Audio Makeover with the Help of GC Pro

GC Pro and Commercial Sound And Video take Central Baptist Church into the era of contemporary worship with a new sound system including digital audio console, in-ear monitoring and upgraded backline

CentralBaptistThe last time the Central Baptist Church of Americus, Georgia, got a new sound system, the church’s music was focused around the traditional elements of choir and organ. Times changed, and so did the church’s style of worship, which has expanded to encompass more contemporary forms of praise and worship music, with electric guitars and drums joining the joyful noise. These changes, however, made the inadequacy of the original sound system readily apparent. “There was more instrumentation and far more low-end signal to the newer music, and that exposed the shortcomings of the old sound system,” says Rodney Powe, the Central Baptist Church’s Worship Leader. “The style of worship and available technology had advanced, and it was just time to move to a new sound system.” That led the church to Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users.

New Design At River of Life Church

In Install News, Web Articles by tfwm

chauvetLocated at the confluence of the Mississippi and Elk Rivers, the community of Elk River, Minnesota has been called the “City of Energy,” a reference to its long history of harnessing the power of its two mighty waterways.  This tradition makes Elk River a fitting home for River of Life Church, a house of worship that radiates positive energy as evidenced by its many outreach programs and  dynamic worship services.

The environment inside the roughly 6,000-square-foot house of worship matches the vibrant character of its services, thanks in no small measure to a high impact lighting design created by Excel AV Group (Maple Grove, MN) that uses the Rogue R2 Spot moving head and COLORdash Par-Quad 18 LED par-style fixture from CHAUVET Professional to engage worshippers.   This was the second phase of a long range project; an earlier phase also utilized CHAUVET Professional variable white LED fixtures for dimmable congregation illumination.

Emmanuel Community Church Engages Worshippers with CHAUVET Professional

In Install News by tfwm

Chauvet Emanuel Baptist 2What’s in a name? Sometimes a great deal of insight into the nature of a church’s character. Such is the case with Emmanuel Community Church in Indiana’s second largest city. “Community” is more than just part of Emmanuel’s name; it’s also a key to its identity. Even the About Us section of the church’s website begins with the words “Emmanuel is a community of people.”

So when Emmanuel Community retained CSD Group of Fort Wayne to redesign its lighting system, it wasn’t surprising that the church had one overriding request: “Give us something that doesn’t just light our stage, but engages our entire community of worshippers.” Doug Hood, president of CSD, and his team met this mission with flying colors using a collection of 60 LED fixtures from CHAUVET Professional.
