HOW DOES THE BIG SCREEN WORK?
The Screen on the Pavilion lawn is a 14 x 25 foot LED wall with imagery supplied by seven cameras inside the Sun Valley Pavilion. The Sun Valley Summer Symphony’s 8-member video production team includes camera operators, a technical director, shader, cue caller and a screen engineer – plus all the camera equipment.
Do you picnic on the lawn and wonder how you can help keep the Big Screen going for future Sun Valley Summer Symphony festival concerts? Give online here or visit the Symphony Store for information about how to give.
