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!

Songs of The Light Performance

On Tuesday 14th August 2018 7:30pm, we’ll be putting on an exciting and immersive performance of Songs of the Light at Greyfriars Community Centre in Ringwood, Hampshire!

This December, we’ll be installing ‘The Light’, a giant illuminated globe in Salisbury Cathedral. To launch the art installation, we’ll be performing an immersive concert of pop and choral music called Songs Of The Light.

Ahead of the performance, we’re putting on an open rehearsal of the music and projections. It’s a free event and we’d love to showcase our plans for the project in Salisbury.

CREATED BY THE COMMUNITY Everything that you will see; the music, the film, the giant screens, the technology that links the film and the music, has all been created by local volunteers who have given their time to create something special. THE MUSIC Songs Of The Light has been especially written for the project by composer Richard McLester. In Salisbury, he’ll be joined by a choir of over 150 singers to perform the songs.
