An L-Acoustics K1 rig was deployed for a historic concert by maestro Zubin Mehta and the Bavarian State Orchestra in Srinagar (Kashmir province), India: it was the first time in 20 years the town had witnessed any form of cultural activity, making this one of the most eagerly anticipated concerts in recent times. The L-Acoustics rig was provided by Indian rental house Sound and Light Professionals (SNL Pro). Two K1-SB were flown either side in throw mode over 6 K1, and 2 SB28’s either side with three pairs of L-Acoustics 115XT HiQ as front fills, were all that was required to achieve an even coverage for the outdoor location. Four LA-RAKs powered the system with 3 LA8’s in each controlled by the LA NETWORK. Jakob Palfrader, the FOH engineer for the Bavarian State Orchestra, was very pleased to see the L-Acoustics K1. A last minute surprise addition to the event was a group of Kashmiri Musicians who joined the Bavarian State Orchestra on stage and delivered an unforgettable fusion performance called Haftrang, which was only rehearsed one day prior to the show. The concert was televised live in 32 countries, live streamed in YouTube and filmed in HD for a future concert DVD. www.snlpro.comwww.l-acoustics.com
