Colorado Symphony Orchestra Opens Season with Live 5.1 Surround Sound Broadcast

Sep 8, 2006 11:40 AM

Denver - Sep 7, 2006 - KVOD, Denver, will broadcast the Colorado Symphony Orchestra's 2006-2007 Masterworks season opening program on Sept. 16 in 5.1 surround sound, using Neural Audio's 5.1 technology for analog and HD Radio. The concert will be aired live from Boettcher Concert Hall at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

The concert, conducted by CSO Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, will give KVOD's analog and digital listeners a rare opportunity to hear the CSO from a virtual seat in the hall. The orchestra will perform Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 with Andre Watts; Chabrier's Espana and Ravel's Suite No. 2 from Daphnis and Chloe, plus the world premiere of Daniel Kellogg's Refracted Skies commemorating the opening of the Frederic C. Hamilton Building at the Denver Art Museum.

KVOD's live broadcast will coincide with The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) conference, a trade association of companies specializing in planning and installing electronic systems including 5.1 surround systems for the home and office.

On site, Neural's Downmix and Upmix units will enable KVOD's mix engineer, Martin Skavish, to deliver his live 5.1 mix from the Boettcher Concert Hall through KVOD's existing stereo infrastructure, and broadcast to KVOD listeners across Colorado.

Neural worked with KUVO Denver on the live HD Radio 5.1 concert broadcast featuring the CSO and jazz artist Dianne Reeves in September 2004.
