Being a recording engineer, I have many, many photos of musical performances from the events I've worked, but I think I'll simply post my most recent one, as it was a highlight. Unfortunately, all I had as a D40 with the kit lens, some 100 feet from the stage and behind two panes of glass.



We treated the dress rehearsal as the recording session so that the orchestra wouldn't have to contend with monstrous mic stands during the performance. This clip is from the session. I hope you enjoy it, as it's some of my best work.

Excerpt from Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe, Suite No. 2

***EDIT - Somebodty please fix the typo in my subject line!***

Hi David, Thanks for sharing. That looks like Boston Symphony Hall. If that's not the location, it looks very similar, including the organ.

I'll take care of the typo for you.

Well I love pipe organ music and orchestral music as well. I have been an organist most of my life and I love the sound of classical organ music played on a large organ.

So...the question is still unanswered. Is this Boston Symphony Hall?
