Brussels, Belgium (October 28, 2011)—A recent concert on the promenade in front of the European Parliament building was heard via QSC K12 active loudspeakers and PowerLight 3 amplifiers.
The event celebrated Parliament’s naming of two new landmarks, the “Simone Veil Agora,” to honor former EP president Simone Veil and the “Solidarność 1980 Esplanade,” to acknowledge the Solidarność union movement in Europe’s recent history.
Belgian audio visual company GSF Event was the project manager for the concert. According to GSF co-founder Sammy Freh, GSF managed the sound and lighting for the show, with Stageco providing the staging infrastructure.
“We knew we needed a lot of power to drive the PA and provide enough coverage for this audience of around 3,000 people assembled between the ASP building and Place du Luxembourg,” says Freh. “For us, QSC was the logical choice.” GSF selected 13 of QSC’s PowerLight 3 flagship 8000 W PL380 amplifiers to drive the PA system and monitors, which also included four QSC K12 12″, 2-Way 1000 W active loudspeakers, acting as front fills.
As a result of the recent concert and its work providing audio for the all-day event, the GSF team was personally invited by EP president Jerzy Buzek to a reception at the ‘Cabinet du Président’ on the 11th floor of the European Parliament, where it was officially congratulated for its work.
