RG Jones is delighted to re-join Katherine Jenkins on her latest “Guiding Light Tour 2019” with Anthony Inglis conducting the London Concert Orchestra.
It’s been four years since Katherine Jenkins last tour and in that time, she has been on an emotional journey. The album speaks of life, hope and acceptance, featuring personal favourites and reflects on her sense of loss for her father that has arisen as she has embarked on her own journey into parenthood.
It really is a magical show and the team from RG Jones are the best of the best, with Steve Carr at FOH and Mark Edwards on system.
“As always, it’s been great having RG’s as the audio supplier on this tour. I’ve been lucky enough to have the brilliant Mark Edwards as my system engineer and the excellent MLA Compact as my PA. As you’d expect in these circumstances the results have been consistently outstanding. I feel well and truly spoilt. With RG’s not only do you get peace of mind, you get a wealth of experience that’s hard to quantify and that is priceless.” Steve Carr, FOH Engineer
Grammy nominated conductor Anthony Inglis is recognised as “one of Britain’s most popular conductors”. Here at RG Jones, we can see why. Anthony Inglis is not only extraordinary conductor; he is also one of the loveliest fellows to work with and has a long history with RG Jones built over many years of conducting Classical Spectacular. In fact, Anthony has featured more times at London’s Royal Albert Hall than anyone else in the building’s history
He began his conducting career with shows in the West End and on the music staff for some of Ken Russell’s composer films. At the same time, he conducted English National Ballet and Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet, before moving to European orchestras and appearing on BBC Television with the Ulster Orchestra and making videos with the Philharmonic Orchestra at The Royal Festival Hall and The Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra at The Concertgebouw.
He musically supervised and conducted the 25th anniversary concerts of Phantom of The Opera at The RAH, the final performance of which went live to cinemas around the world. He also conducted the 30th anniversary performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
It is a great privilege for RG Jones to be associated with Anthony and every member of the team are always delighted to get to work with him. The show is a perfect blend of magical skill; the unique beauty of Katherines voice against Anthony's flawless orchestration and a stage full of exceptionally musicians offers Steve a rich mix of talent that has touched every audience; not a dry eye left in the house.
To everyone involved in performing, the amplified sound is a critical part of the process, and with the engineering excellence and the people who operate the equipment of RG Jones, I know that what comes out matters as much to them as what goes in matters to me. They never fail to impress me”.
