KRAKOW, Poland — For an open-air concert staged near the Sanctuary of John Paul II here to celebrate the canonization of Poland’s first pontiff, TSE Grupa supplied lighting and video gear. The rig included SGM fixtures — 45 SixPack blinders and 44 P-5 wash lights. Along with the late John Paul II (1920-2005), Pope Francis approved the canonization of the late Pope John XXIII (1881-1963) last July. Both canonizations were celebrated by a mass led by Pope Francis on April 27, 2014 in Vatican City’s St. Peter’s Square.
More details from SGM (www.sgm-light.com):
For the recent canonization of Pope John Paul II in Poland, TSE Grupa played a key role as one of the longest-serving lighting companies in the Polish market.
TSE Grupa supplied all lighting equipment and multimedia solutions, and carried out the installation at the Sanctuary of John Paul II near Cracow, while their own Adam Tyszka and Sebastian Pachciarek were responsible for designing, preparing and coordinating the light show for the great celebration concert.
For this major achievement 45 SixPack blinders and 44 P-5 wash lights were deployed. TSE Grupa has had the LED fixtures from SGM as part of their stock almost since product launch, and the company is more than satisfied with its investment, having used the fixtures in various applications.
Pachciarek commends the SGM fixtures for their low weight, low power consumption and quality of light output. “These are the most important parameters for a TV show, and the SGM products meet these demands. However, for this particular outdoor concert we also needed waterproof fixtures, and for that the SGM fixtures were the ideal choice”, he says.
Catholic pilgrims gathered to attend the open-air concert, recognizing the elevation of Pope John Paul II to saint, which was also broadcast by TVP1 (Polish national public broadcaster). This concert differed significantly from TSE Grupa’s usual projects, where the concert theme could be jazz or pop. “This project was designed to be ‘light and reverent’, I feel confident that we achieved this target”, Pachciarek informs – backed up by the groundswell of positive feedback the company received after the concert.
As a self-proclaimed LED supporter, Pachciarek was pleased to be working with the SGM fixtures and was especially impressed by the IP rating. With many upcoming projects in the pipeline offering further opportunities for use – including TV shows, festivals and corporate events – the versatility of the powerful, low profile units is underlined once more.
