Six String Spektrum at Light Up Poole – Application

SoundStorm is delighted to have been asked once again to partner with Light Up Poole Festival. Now into it’s third year, this ground breaking festival reimagines Poole town centre, through light and sound installations and for 2020 will be bigger than ever before.

We have commissioned Hub partner and virtuoso guitarist Chris Woods to develop ‘6 String Spektrum’ – a musical response to the festival theme which will be premiered in the glorious setting of The Guildhall on the opening night of the festival (Feb 20th). The event will draw together guitarists of all abilities to perform as a pop-up orchestra, who’ll be joined by aspiring young guitarists recruited from local schools. Chris will be delivering a series of in-school workshops throughout January and February to introduce the ‘Spektrum’.

SoundStorm is also delighted to be partnering with Arts University Bournemouth, and their second year students from the Event Management degree who will lead on the event design and planning for the 20th.

All students wishing to perform at The Guildhall must complete the registration form below before the 18th Feb. The event details (arrival, rehearsal and performance timings) will be communicated to their parents on the week of the festival. The score has parts for all abilities.
