On Tuesday 14th August artist Richard Mclester performed Songs of The Light at Greyfriars Community Centre, Ringwood. The performance was a preview of the concert coming to Salisbury Cathedral this Christmas.
Katie: “This performance really gripped me and inspired me. I really liked the videos and thought that the songs were written amazingly.” Eve: “Good to encourage people to talk about their hurt.” Sue: “Very professional and enjoyable. Will be amazing in the Cathedral!”
The whole performance was made possible thanks to the incredible amount of hard work from all of our volunteers and students. Morgan, a 15 year old student volunteering with us for his DofE, has written an article for us, about the performance:
Bringing a Light Into Our Lives ‘Light is all around us’ a common phrase known by many, but this vibrant performance by Conical Sphere Music gives a fresh insight into the true importance of peoples perception of the light amongst us. This new and innovative way of understanding what light means to different people, began as a community project run by Richard McLester, founder of Conical Sphere, and a variety of volunteers from Poole and Bournemouth. This musical eye opener delivers some truly inspiring stories and a sensational display projected onto three screens. A captivated audience of 48 people watched these projections of inspiring true stories from individuals about what the light means to them. These provoking displays were adjoined with live musical interludes throughout the evening, creating an exciting environment for all viewers of a variety of ages in an intimate setting. Throughout the evening people were offered promotional CDs of the performance music and wine, gifted to the project by their sponsors The Village Vine, a local independent wine merchant. The evening was most enjoyable for all people of any age and was seen by many as ‘something very new, very different, yet amazing’
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and came to the event. We really value your support!

On Friday 27th April 2018 7:00pm, we’ll be putting on an exciting and immersive performance of Songs of the Light at St Edwards Secondary School in Oakdale, Poole, Dorset!

Watch the Official Trailer for the Event…

St Edward’s School Choir

We’ve been working hard with pupils there to put together a choir especially for the event.

Personal Journeys and Stories

This isn’t just about the music – it’s also a chance to share personal journeys and stories with each other; the reason why the project started in the first place. These stories will touch upon the subject of darkness to light; highlighting mental health issues and helping to remind us that we’re not alone.

Involving the Community

We’ve been making giant screens onto which we’ll be projecting stories and other immersive film clips throughout the evening. This has all been made possible by a huge amount of voluntary work by local volunteers and students from Poole College and Bournemouth University. Many of these guys also went to St Edward’s as students so it’s a great opportunity to celebrate what your local community has gone on to achieve!

Fundraising for Christian Aid

While our work focuses on creative ways to develop our local community, Christian Aid is about supporting the global community in some of the world’s poorest countries. That’s why we’re donating all ticket sales for the event towards helping them continue their vital work.

The evening will be a great example of how local people in Poole can come together and make a real difference. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. We’d love to see you there!
