Earlier in the year and at long last, after a lot of research and discussion, the Maroondah Singers Committee finally decided to purchase a PA system with a council grant.
We have John Williams to thank for his contribution not only in time and effort sourcing the most suitable PA system but also his generous financial donation to upgrade the system. Being a portable system means we are able to take it to other venues when necessary and it allows us to add other useful components in the future. It has already been a great boost to rehearsal sessions, we can now hear what is being said and also play discs when necessary.
At the end of last year a new invisible wireless head microphone was added which Ally wore to make her speech and which behaved beautifully. This will be ideal at our concerts and means that the user will have both hands free to hold notes or music rather than clutching a microphone.
