Dulwich College was founded by Edward Alleyn on June 21st 1619. Alleyn was an actor and an entrepreneur in the world of Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre, a colourful and famous figure of his day.
The College and it grounds are very treasured and it remains operational throughout the extensive installation of our equipment. “Our plans and preparations have to carefully consider the safety aspects and detailed logistical considerations in order to deliver, construct and remove over two artic’s of equipment with minimal disruption” Explains Soundstage One project manager Rob Baylis.
The concert features a wide variety of musical entertainment performed by the Symphonic Wind Band, Big Band, Percussion ensemble and Brass Consort as well as the celebrated Alleynian Blues. The programme often includes music from the Last Night of the Proms, as well various contemporary pieces ending with spectacular fireworks.
“Soundstage One has an established relationship with Dulwich College, providing staging and technical support for our prestigious summer Founder’s Day concert; the evening event is held in the open air and attracts an audience upwards of 2000. The staging, sound and lighting supplied and installed by Soundstage One have been instrumental in creating a string of successful concerts.’
