THE 18TH CENTURY CONCERT ORCHESTRA
The 18th Century Concert Orchestra: the original tribute band. Since its first concerts in September 2001, the 18th Century Concert Orchestra has been delighting audiences with its pictorial view of how an 18th century concert might have looked and sounded. In historical costumes, using instruments of the era and including contemporary commentaries, the orchestra's performances are full of charm, elegance and wit. "Like viewing an eighteenth century painting with all the dirt and varnish removed - absolutely fantastic", Bath Music Critic. The orchestra has played in theatres, concert halls, churches and stately homes across the UK and further afield (including a two week tour of Canada). Their endeavours have earned them a National Lottery award and Arts Council England recognition, and a performance of Handel's Messiah was filmed for two television programmes in the Channel 4 series Georgian Underworld. Latest information about sponsorship opportunities is available on request. Contact: Marketing department. Address: 1 Blakeley Brow, Raby Mere, Wirral, CH63 0PS. Tel./fax: 0151 334 1956. E-mail:

LINCOLNSHIRE INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival (LICMF) has been in existence since 2004 with the aim of bringing chamber music of the highest quality to remote areas of our county, and to audiences who would otherwise not have the opportunity for such a wonderful experience. "Using a variety of venues, including churches, country houses and small village halls, we have been able to bring the joy of live music to such communities, performed by first-class musicians with truly international reputations, who thrill their audiences and enrich their enjoyment. We achieve this through the expertise of our Lincolnshire-born artistic director, Ashley Wass, who is fully committed to the festival - he creates imaginative and varied programmes on a different theme each year, and has also included specially-commissioned works in the repertoire which have been given their premieres in Lincolnshire! In 2014 we began a new venture, taking professional musicians into primary schools to give 'workshops' to as many pupils as possible, including many small village schools, and providing a wonderful opportunity for the children; one of our headteachers described our visit as 'a privilege'. These musicians then perform as part of our very successful Lunchtime Concert series at the Lincoln Drill Hall which takes place once a month from September to July. Our festival is recognised by the BBC as one of the country's leading chamber music festivals. They have broadcast our concerts as part of the Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert series for the past four years and will be returning this year. Any sponsors are acknowledged and thanked in all of our programmes and brochures, and on the website, unless they choose otherwise. Members of the board can be contacted via LICMF's office address at Lincoln Drill Hall, Free School Lane, Lincoln, LN2 1EY, by telephone on 07757708858 or via e-mail on
licmfoffice@ntlworld.com". Updated information is available on request. Contact: Jane O'Farrell. Address: LICMF, 27 Chauntry Road, Alford, Lincolnshire LN13 9HH. Tel.: 01507 462751. Fax: 01507 462751. E-mail: jane.ofarrell@virgin.net

MUSIC AT PAXTON
     About Music at Paxton - established in response to local demand in 2006, Music at Paxton is a charitable organisation which produces an annual Chamber Music Festival each July in the tranquil setting of Paxton House, an eighteenth century Palladian country house, near the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed in the Scottish Borders. "From a pilot weekend in 2006, we have grown to a ten-day summer festival, featuring international celebrity artists alongside emerging young talent and the best of the UK's established chamber musicians, with audiences who travel from Edinburgh and the Lothians, Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, Glasgow, and beyond.     About Paxton House - an eighteenth century John Adam mansion, Paxton House nestles in the banks of the River Tweed. Full of treasures, the house is home to a magnificent collection of Chippendale and Trotter furniture, and boasts beautiful gardens and extensive woodland and riverside grounds. Concerts are held in the stunning Picture Gallery, an intimate venue seating 140, the largest built for a private home in Scotland, and an outreach of the National Galleries of Scotland. With its wonderful acoustics, domed roof-light that lets in the summer sun and walls hung high with paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland's collection, it is an idyllic setting for chamber music.      2016 Festival - headlining the 2016 festival are violinist Alina Ibragimova, cellist Pieter Wispelwey and pianist Cédric Tiberghien, in a residency over the opening weekend alongside the Doric String Quartet, allowing scope for concerts of wide ranging formats and the opportunity for audiences to interact with our artists in varied settings. During the week we will present a Live Music Now Scotland showcase of emerging artists, who will also perform elsewhere in the community around the time of the festival. The closing weekend will feature the internationally-renowned Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt. Full programme details are available on request". Contact: Elizabeth Macdonald, General Manager.

AMCM/013 YORKSHIRE BACH CHOIR
Yorkshire Bach Choir (YBC) was formed in 1979 by its director, Peter Seymour, and is now one of the UK’s leading choirs. It enjoys an international reputation for its performances of Renaissance, Baroque and classical music, both unaccompanied and with the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists, and alongside the finest soloists, e.g. Emma Kirkby, James Gilchrist and Stephen Varcoe. YBC also regularly performs newly-edited and rediscovered masterpieces of earlier centuries. The choir has performed at numerous prestigious UK and European festivals. It has given frequent BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and has made a number of commercial recordings, most recently a CD of Victoria’s Psalms and Motets. But the most important part of YBC’s music making is the annual season of six concerts in the beautiful church of St Michael-le-Belfrey, situated alongside York Minster. Regular performances of the great works of the repertoire, such as Bach’s B minor Mass and Mozart’s Requiem, are given with orchestra using original instruments. And it’s for all these concerts that YBC seeks sponsorship. There are many sponsorship options available for next season, and individual requirements can easily be discussed. Some obvious benefits for sponsors are prominent mention in the choir’s promotional material, sponsor’s advertisement in each concert programme, complimentary tickets for sponsors and guests, opportunities to meet soloists, distinguished instrumentalists and conductor, press coverage and photo opportunities. The choir can also assist should sponsors wish to entertain their guests further, for example at the Dean Court Hotel or St William’s College, both in the shadow of the Minster. Registered charity no. 700412. Contact: Andrew Jackson. Address: 6 Eppleworth Road, Cottingham, East Yorkshire HU16 5YE. Tel.: 01482 840630. E-mail: andrew@adj.karoo.co.uk
