SoundStorm is the lead partner for the award winning Music Education Hub across BCP Council. In partnership with Light Up Poole, the Hub commissioned virtuoso guitarist Chris Woods of The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra 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 20thFebruary.
