trophies handed out
crotales in a SOCAN trophy (now you need to look up what a crotale is!)
The SOCAN Awards celebrate Canadian songwriters, composers, film scorers and music publishers. This year over 40 awards were given out at the 27th annual awards show.
e=mc² events was responsible for designing, writing, and directing the entire evening including the red carpet reception, dinner and awards show. We managed all technical requirements including stage design, lighting, AV, video production and scripting, coordination of all the entertainment, presenters and hosts, event décor, and food & beverage management.
No music awards show would be complete without great Canadian talent and this show had a variety of live performances, ranging from the up and comers, to the classics, the pop, the rock and the classical – always keeping the audience guessing!
Resounding applause erupted when we surprised the audience by unveiling a 12 member vertical orchestra in a 42 feet x 20 feet scaffold structure. Hidden behind a projection screen – we lit them up in a “Hollywood Squares” type fashion after they had been performing live for the audience sight unseen. The orchestra accompanied the artists throughout the evening – adding a fun, complex and unique event element.
