With many Christmas sermons, programs, concerts and gatherings around the holiday season, Mount Olivet Lutheran Church worked with Staging Concepts in the winter of 2015 to refresh their resources in preparation. Between both campuses in Minneapolis and Plymouth, more than 1,000 individuals lend their voices to Mount Olivet’s 14 choirs. At the beginning of this project, Mount Olivet had a choral riser that Facilities Operations Manager Don Wamsley estimates was almost 40 years old. Staging Concepts worked with Mount Olivet to design and build a custom choral riser that would fit perfectly into their sanctuary and alter space, accommodating up to 200 choir members and the large Christmas trees behind it. Originally bought for the holiday season, the choral riser will get great use out of the groups that use it- but the platforms within this structure can be used for many other applications year-round. The principal Staging Concepts products used in this custom choral riser are SC90 Platforms, SC9600 Bridge Supports, IBC Guardrails, and accessories.
