It looks to me like you might potentially need consent from everyone in
the audience, too, even though their voices aren't recorded, since they
are still, in a sense, a party to the conversation.  On the other hand,
it looks like maybe it's enough to announce clearly that you are
recording:

Since violating this is a criminal and civil matter, though, and there
might be other jurisdictions involved, I do not think it's a good idea
to record it without much more clear legal guidance.
