Santa Monica, CA (February 7, 2023)—The annual Grammy Awards ceremony has long been known as “music’s biggest night,” but without the skills of a dedicated team of audio pros, the broadcast would just be a night. When the event returned once again to the venerable Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles this past Sunday after three years away due to COVID-related restrictions, the production also provided a brief moment for the 2023 audio crew to gather for a photo at the foot of the stage.
The 65th Annual Grammy Awards showcased numerous musical performances and tributes by and for high-profile artists, and they were delivered to millions around the globe using the latest in technology, resulting in a cutting-edge, high-definition immersive sound.
