April 1, 2007 Lighting for solo vocalists

This weekend, two songs started with a solo vocalist.  I used the front lights to highlight the solos and provide a transition when the rest of the singers and the band joined in.

Open The Gates

In the following song, the female vocalist at stage left leads the song, so I highlighted her for the first look by dimming the front lights on the rest of the band and singers.


I then brought up front lights on the other singers and band members.

Endlessly 2

I did the same thing for this song, but with a different lead vocalist.

The Stand

The Stand

And three more songs…

Awesome God

Beautiful The Blood

Carried To The Table

We did one cool thing that I didn’t photograph.  We have six pars on the ceiling throughout the auditorium that light the walls.  With blue gels, we used them as “house lights” while communion was being served.
