The school utilized wireless d:facto Vocal Microphones for the event's soloists
USA - The School of Church Music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS) is once again getting into the holiday spirit with DPA Microphones for its third annual Keyboards and Carols at Christmas event.

With 13 Steinway Grand Pianos, one organ and a choir of over 180 adults and children, student and professional musicians performed holiday songs for the packed house at the 3,500-seat venue. In addition to using a stereo pair of d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones on each of the pianos, the school also utilized four wireless d:facto Vocal Microphones for the event's soloists.

DPA mics were chosen for their clear, pristine sound as well as their ability to reproduce the natural beauty of both the Steinway pianos and the exceptional voices of the singers. With the addition of the large choir, this year's event featured a significant change in the setup from previous Christmas performances.

The stage featured three pianos and the organ on elevated platforms, with the additional 10 pianos on the main level of the stage, a 70-person children's choir positioned on the steps in front of the instruments and a 115-member adult choir performed from the choir loft behind the pianos.
