Coming June 13th (Thursday, 7:30pm), The 2nd Annual Pacific Northwest Audio Society’s "Live vs. Recorded" Event, Featuring Seattle Opera Soprano Marcy Stonikas and Violin Soloist Marie' Rossano.

After the fantastic success of last year's "Live vs. Recorded" meeting we decided to make this an annual June event for the Audio Society. It's hard to beat the energy and excitement that goes along with a live performance and recording and playing back the performance is our way of putting our own audiophile spin on the evening.

This year we have two musical artists who you won't want to miss. We're fortunate to have partnered with the Seattle Opera to find soprano Marcy Stonikas. Marcy is an accomplished opera singer, who's played around the world from Seattle to Vienna. In addition, we have Seattle violin soloist Marie' Rossano. Marie has appeared as a soloist with the Seattle Symphony and is also the winner of the 2012 Classical KING FM Young Artist Award. She'll be performing at the Juliard School before our event and with the Salt Lake Symphony after.

Phillip Chance, recording engineer for the Seattle Woodwind Symphony, will join us to record the performances of these two amazing women.

This event is open to the public and the Audio Society will provide food and drinks. For the information of our guests, the event will start at 7:30pm, on Thursday, June 13th and will be held in the upper level of the Mercer Island Congregational Church on 4545 Island Crest Way.

I had the pleasure of recording this event. Attendance was at least 70 guests the last I heard.
We had a last minute replacement for the singer and Ms. Kimberly Giordano stepped in.

Phillip Chance did the mic placement and ran the signal into my Pyramix DSD workstation. Format was DSD128fs.
After recording, we then headed down to the meeting area to play back the files. All in all, it was quite the event.
Video and stills were shot during the event and will be posted soon. So stay tuned!

WHAT...No Analog :confused::eek:
Just kidding :p
It was bad enough to keep from over modulating with the DSD. The singer, at my position about 25' away, at times hit 92dB peaks! I felt sorry for people in the front row!! :rolleyes:

It was a really fun evening. We had an accident on the I-90 at 5:00 that backed up traffic for about two hours, which unfortunately kept some people from venturing out, but we started about 15 minutes late and many people were able to make it. The program went off without a hitch, thanks to John Stone's planning. As for me, I'm relieved that we got it under our belt and it went well. If you couldn't make it this year we'll do it again next year. In the meantime, depending on how Bruce's crazy schedule goes, we'll have downloadable files posted on the Audio Society's website soon. We also had a videographer there, so there should be video of the event by this fall. You'll see, the performers were amazing...and by that I don't mean really good, I mean amazing.
