The Newseum in Washington, DC, has the largest LCD screen in the world! For this corporate event, Kevin Olivera was Entertainment and Technical Producer, handling all aspects of the corporate entertainment production.
He provided a jazz quartet, consisting of piano, bass, guitar, and saxophone, which played background cocktail music for the guests on the top level, overlooking the terrace and the U.S. Capitol.
Once the guests were assembled in the Grand Atrium, Kevin was responsible for ensuring the client’s media materials were properly displayed on a 40’ x 60’ screen. Initially, the format provided by the client did not transfer well when projected to the large screen. Careful coordination with the fabulous event staff at the Newseum, including several site visits, produced a flawless presentation.
Once the program began, he provided technical cues for varying slides. He also arranged for a male vocalist, a former Marine, to sing the National Anthem. This patriotic touch dovetailed perfectly with the strong political learnings of the Foundation sponsor for the event.
