Concord High School Graduation 2021

ConcordTV is excited to bring you Concord High School’s 2021 Graduation. This year’s graduating seniors have had a high school experience like no other, and we are proud of their tenacity and grit, enduring ever-changing circumstances, to make it to this important day. We know that once again, some will be prevented from attending this celebration in person. We hope that this stream of the day’s events help all of us near and far to recognize and enjoy our graduates’ accomplishments.

Live streaming an event can be fraught with technical challenges. Please be assured that should a technical issue occur during the event, the graduation ceremony is being simultaneously recorded, and we will make the video available as soon as possible.

Celebrate Public Works Week!

ConcordTV always enjoys a good celebration, even when that celebration is virtual. And it was our pleasure to help the Concord General Services craft some content for their 2021 Virtual Public Works Celebration, part of National Public Works Week.

The theme of this year’s National Public Works Week, “Stronger Together,” celebrates the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. By working together, the impact citizens and public works professionals can have on their communities is magnified and creates strength for the ability to accomplish goals.

We encourage everyone to visit the city’s National Public Works Week website at www.concordnh.gov/pww to learn about the many, often surprising, things General Services does to keep our community strong.

From treating our city’s wastewater…

 

 

… to maintaining our public places…

 

 

…and a whole bunch more, thank you to the General Services team for the critical role you play in making Concord a great place to live, work, and play!

ConcordTV Live-Streams Citizen of the Year Award Ceremony

On Tuesday March 30th ConcordTV provided live-stream support for the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year ceremony. It was a collaborative effort amongst ConcordTV, the Chamber, and Bank of NH Stage and went off flawlessly.

The event celebrated 2020 Citizen of the Year, Linda Lorden, gave a Special Community Service Citation to Deborah DePeyster of Woman’s Club of Concord, as well as recognizing Nicki Clarke of Capitol Center for the Arts for her outstanding leadership as our 2019-2020 Board Chair.

CoY behind the scenes

Watch the full ceremony here

We don’t often talk about the behind-the-scenes of how events like this come together. ConcordTV IT Director Michael O’Meara served as our project lead for this video, ensuring it would look and sound as professional as the community has come to expect from ConcordTV productions. We used three HD cameras, a video switcher, laptop, and thanks to Steve Martin at Bank NH Stage an incredible lighting and audio setup.

It was quite the tech setup don’t you think? As always ConcordTV is proud to support and celebrate all the great things happening in our city.
