CALGARY, AB, Canada – Calgary’s Jack Singer Concert Hall, home to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Stage, and TD Jazz, has been equipped with a Meyer Sound system along with LynTec power control. Local AV integrator Sapphire Sound worked with Meyer Sound and GerrAudio Distribution on the project.

More details from LynTec (www.lyntec.com).

There are concert halls, and then there is the Jack Singer Concert Hall. Part of Calgary Alberta’s Arts Commons facility, the Jack Singer Concert Hall (JSCH) is one of the most acclaimed venues in North America. It is home to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Stage, and TD Jazz. It has also hosted TED Talks, National Geographic Live speakers, and rock stars. With such a wide range of musical, entertainment, and presentation events, the venue demands state-of-the-art audio and power control systems.

While COVID-19 forced the JSCH to remain closed to the public throughout 2020 and into the 2021 season, the not-for-profit space was able to use the downtime to overhaul its audio, video, and lighting (AVL) systems. A feature of the overhaul was the installation of a flexible Meyer Sound system that can be easily re-configured to accommodate multiple audience seating arrangements, depending on the type of show being performed on stage. To achieve this, the team at the Jack Singer collaborated with local AV integrator, Sapphire Sound, along with GerrAudio Distribution, Meyer Sound’s Canadian distributor, and Meyer Sound, to come up with a hybrid system.
