Australia Tour 2018: A Day in the Life of a Tafelmusik Technician

By Patrick Lavender, touring video operator Patrick joins us on our 2018 Australia tour for his first tour with the orchestra. As the video operator, Patrick runs the projections during a live performance, which includes still images and video, timing it perfectly with musical and speaking cues while following a score of the music. When the orchestra was in Canberra, Patrick gave us a look in a day in the life of a technician on the road.

US Tour: Tafelmusik in Seattle

By William Norris, Managing Director
