What Is The Light?
The Light is an art installation will hang from mid-November 2015 until the first week of January 2016 in Poole Dolphin Shopping Centre. To accompany the installation, Richard McLester has been writing Songs of the Light. This new music will be premiered at concert performance on 26th November 2015 underneath the installation in the shopping centre.
Since 2011, Richard McLester has been responsible for producing and constructing large scale art installations at St Peter’s Church Parkstone to accompany the Christmas period. These art installations have always had original music composed by Richard to accompany them and have progressively got more sophisticated each year with more partners and volunteers getting involved each time.
For 2015, the concept is to construct a giant globe of light in Poole Dolphin Shopping Centre. The installation will hang for 8 weeks over November and December 2015. The Light is all about exploring the Hope, Emerging Light and Anticipation of Christmas.

All of the music has been written by Richard McLester.
