God’s Trombones at Christ Church Cathedral

It always means so much to us when we get kind words from people we work with–customer service is extremely important to us, so hearing that we’ve made people happy is completely heartwarming. As such, we couldn’t resist sharing this delightful message about an event we recently lit!

God’s Trombones, a new dramatization of James Weldon Johnson’s second collection of poetry,was written by Ted Swindley of Always… Patsy Cline fame. It was staged at the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral and directed by Mr. Swindley and Mary McCallum, and featured poetry staged in a unique theatrical musical production.

After the event we received this lovely email from Mr. Swindley:

We were ecstatic to be a part of this beautiful show in such an incredible setting, and we look forward to working with this amazing team again!

Rosco has added 12 new colors to the E-Colour system and we have all 12 in stock.  

E5084 – Damson Violet A deep, rosy violet for saturated washes and modeling effects. A chameleon-like color varying from warm to cool depending on the color temperature of the source.
E5085 – French Lilac An intense, warm lilac for romantic and non realistic accents. Enhances dimensionality when used as a sidelight.
E5211 – Ice Blue A subtle theatrical color corrector. Perfect to pull the red edge off of a tungsten source.
E5264 – Venetian Blue A pale steel blue useful in cool washes. Create subtle shadows or hazy blue skies.
E5287 – Fuji Blue A neutral medium blue, can be warm or cool when paired with contrasting colors. A nice intermediate hue for transitions from magic hour into evening.
E5336 – Aztec Gold A burnt amber with a touch of sepia and a honey-like quality. Very versatile, from soft sunlight effects to richly dingy interiors.
E5404 – Wisteria Soft, pale lavender. Excellent area wash. Good as an intermediary between amber and blue.
E5454 – Olympia Green A strong Green-Blue. Use as an interesting component in animated water effects or to create a mysterious, spooky atmosphere.
