As many of you know I do a live radio show four times per year. It is a lot of fun to work on and the production values are very high. Everything it working well EXCEPT for the soloist and chorus recording. They are in the middle of the stage with an organ console behind them and two announcers flanking them. The stage is about 20 feet wide. Currently I am using a crossed pair of cardioid condenser microphones for the chorus and a dynamic cardioid microphone for the soloist. (before someone suggests omni microphones - these singers are also amplified into the room) I tried a Peter Paul and Mary setup before this (3 cardioid microphones in a semi circle on their own booms) but I did not get the results I wanted. The soloist comes though fine the chorus, which can range from 3 to 8, does not come though as well. Most of the singers are pros and they all are use to working with microphones. I can hear individual voices in the chorus but am not getting a good blend of voices. I am looking for some other solutions. Any help would be appreciated.

This is NOT the was we are currently doing the show.
