The city of Madison, Wisconsin is fortunate to have an annual tradition known as Madison’s Opera in the Park, and to have the support of Jonathan and Susan Lipp from Full Compass. Jonathan, Full Compass founder and CEO, and Susan, chairman of the board, are both involved annually in this event.

2019 was the 18th year of this summer tradition. Jonathan himself served as lead sound
engineer and he, along with the Full Compass Rentals team, selected, supplied and set up much of the audio gear. He understands that for an expansive outdoor production featuring singers and musicians, the right equipment and mix are essential to capturing and reproducing the full dynamic range of the performance.

This year, Full Compass supplied equipment from Sennheiser and Yamaha, as well as a public address system and delay system from Bag End. Specifically, a Yamaha QL5 mixer with Rio Stage box was used at the event, along with Sennheiser wireless microphones.

Behind the boards, Jonathan was assisted by his grandson, Jake Lipp, as well as Henry Heine from Bag End.

The Madison Opera Chorus and Madison Symphony Orchestra shared their favorite opera and Broadway music theater numbers on Sunday, July 21st to an expected crowd of more than 15,000 patrons. This unique event is known as an opportunity for Madison’s residents to come together to enjoy the talent of the singers and musicians from the state capital.
