Western Canadian Music Awards

Not just another awards show but a nationally televised celebration of many of Canada’s top musicians.

In collaboration with CBC television and producers John Donnelly and Associates we created a dynamic fast passed program featuring 14 performances, multiple award presentations targeted at both a live audience of nearly 1000 and a national television audience on the CBC network.

SW senior audio staff rehearsed and programmed the show using Yamaha PM5D digital consols. SW also provided its new JBL Vertec line array for exceptional coverage of the theatre audience.

In addition SW provided teleprompter, video screens, video wall and a large automated lighting package to compliment the theatre inventory. Working on a project of this size and scope requires a cooperative and collaborative approach with the many stakeholders. The show was a great success and will return next year bigger and better than ever.
