3 Orchestras & Stars – World Cup Opening in Munich

As part of the opening celebrations for the Soccer World Cup in Germany, a concert was given in Munich on June 6, 2006 in the Munich Olympic Stadium. Together on stage were the 3 principle Munich Orchestras; the Munich Philharmonic, the Bavarian State Opera Orchestra, and the Bavarian Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra. The concert program included Placido Domingo, soprano Diana Damrau, the pianist Lang Lang, and the German band “Die Söhne Mannheims” with Xavier Naidoo.

The presentation describes the realization of the sound reinforcement system, which featured J and Q series D&B loudspeakers, 3 Yamaha PM1 D systems at Front of House, a PM5D at the monitor position, and 2 separate DME systems. All interconnections between the mixing consoles and the DME systems were realized in the digital domain.
