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 is seeking sponsorship for three special projects and can offer sponsors genuine benefits for marketing and branding.     Handel's original Messiah, with sell-out audiences for the past four years - the orchestra is looking to expand its annual tour of Handel's monumental work. Presented as it might have looked and sounded during the first performances in 1742 and previously recorded for, and shown on, Channel 4, this is a truly spectacular occasion with full orchestra, choir and soloists.    Bach in Time - the orchestra;s 2007/08 concert series. The orchestra is seeking to develop its own concert series in three high profile venues in the UK. With three performances in each location (nine performances in total), and each performance recorded for podcasting, these concerts will reach an audience throughout the world.     Handeling Bach - education has always been within the core mission of the orchestra, without its having a formalised education programme. The orchestra is currently developing a 'Handeling Bach' project, which will be taken to schoolchildren throughout the UK and which ties in with many areas of the National Curriculum besides music. This project is being researched and developed currently and the orchestra is looking for a principal sponsor to help market and implement it successfully. Contact: Garry Clarke, Executive Director.

BALLARE: TO DANCE
Ballare: To Dance is a concert that brings together world class musicians, with moving visual images, to celebrate internationalism and the forthcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games of 2012. The concert has been devised by the composer, Philip Herbert, and Pawlet Brookes, creative producer and mentor, who are passionate about taking the audience on a voyage across the African diaspora, Argentina, Cuba, India, Mexico and Spain through a colourful sound world of classical music scores with strong world music flavours, which connect with international dance traditions. In amongst these are two new works to be composed by Philip Herbert. The musicians are Timescale Ensemble (soloists of London Symphony Orchestras) along with World music instrumentalists, including solo steel pan, sitar, tabla, guitar, bandoneon and voices. This concert is to be toured and will enjoy huge public benefit through tourism and the publicity campaign approaching the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Serendipity, the organisation which is producing the event, has already found £17,500 towards meeting the sponsorship costs of this project. Another £63,400 is needed to enable the project to go ahead. Contact: Pawlett Brookes, Artistic Director. Address: Serendipity Artists Movement, 5 Museum Square, Leiceser LE1 6UF. Tel.: 07778 404004.

AMOR/PL004 GATESHEAD YOUTH ORCHESTRA
Sponsorship opportunities are available in connection with this versatile orchestra which already has a high profile both locally in the north east and nationally. Founded in 1953, Gateshead Youth Orchestra aims to give young musicians who attend school in Gateshead, or have a strong connection with the town, an opportunity to perform a wide range of music from a variety of periods and styles. Approximately fifty talented students from 11 to 19 years of age rehearse weekly under the direction of John Treherne, who has also composed original works especially for the orchestra. In addition to well known repertoire, eg this season, Mozart Piano Concerto K488, Vivaldi Guitar Concerto, Haydn Cello Concerto, Telemann Violin Concerto, the orchestra has performed lesser known works by composers such as Charles Avison. Also a performance of Rosina, an opera by local composer William Shield, last performed in the 18th century, was a memorable occasion. The overture to Rosina, which includes the melody Auld Lang Syne, caused a lively debate at the time about the origin of this celebrated tune. The orchestra was subsequently featured on BBC Television and in many major newspapers. Local venues have included Shipley Art Gallery, Council Chamber Gateshead, Northumbria Police HQ and Newcastle Civic Centre. Each summer the orchestra embarks on an overseas educational visit and in recent years has toured Germany, France, Holland, the Czech Republic and Tuscany. There have been several CDs recorded both locally and on tour. These provide a valuable record of achievement for the orchestra's young musicians. The orchestra plans to undertake further overseas tours. Support for this type of activity, the purchase of new music and commission of new works is essential to enable the orchestra to consolidate its success and to ensure that young north eastern musical talent is allowed to flourish.

LEEDS PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY
The chorus of the Leeds Philharmonic Society is a chorus of national standing which regularly broadcasts for the BBC, and which has made a number of commercial recordings. Its members are all amateurs, however, and the society is largely self-financing. The society is looking for sponsors for two areas. First, to enable the chorus to undertake an overseas tour of some 100+ singers to Budapest, Bratsilava and Prague, without the financial burden being totally on the chorus's individual members. The society anticipates having to meet the cost of travel and accommodation, together with the cost of an organist, orchestra, soloists and music hire in the host countries. Secondly, to contribute to the cost of those concerts the society promotes itself, outside of the Leeds International Concert Season. Again it is looking at the cost of a conductor, orchestra, soloists and the hire of Leeds Town Hall or another venue. Sponsors will be fully credited on all promotional material both in the UK and in Europe and the society is open to discussion on more innovative ways to celebrate any partnership.

AMOR/PL007
THE NATIONAL CONCERT ORCHESTRA OF GREAT BRITAIN
The National Concert Orchestra of Great Britain was formed with two specific remits: (a)to provide valuable work opportunities for graduate music students; and (b) to perform music repertoire which is commercially feasible and desirable. The orchestra itself is basically fixed at thirty musicians and is expanded to forty-five musicians on occasion. The repertoire performed ranges from 'Popular Classical' to 'Light Popular' and a variety of concert performances, not limited to its recent Bat - the Symphony tour (the music of Meatloaf), Abba - the Symphony, A Festival for Christmas, which features the widest range of popular classical and Easy Listening. The concert performances also include The Last Night of the Proms, which is given a more 21st Century approach (as were the highly successful BBC Proms 2007 with Michael Ball), The Vienna Proms, which are appreciated by a wider public than most orchestras realise and A Festival of Film, which plays the most popular film music from the American Billboard Top 100. In 2008, the orchestra was the only professional British orchestra to perform a concert of music to celebrate the centenary of composer Leroy Anderson (Sleigh Ride, The Typewriter, Belle of the Ball, Blue Tango and twenty more very popular tunes) whilst in America and Scandinavia - almost every orchestra performed a concert of his music! The sponsorship opportunity is for a person or persons, with a genuine interest in a wide genre of orchestral music, to participate in the development of the orchestra, its players (who are mostly in their early twenties) and in overseeing the presentation to a wider public of music repertoire other than the heavy classics. "As Musical Direcor and Conductor of the orchestra", says Greg Francis, "my own experience has been in writing orchestrations and conducting some of the well known orchestras, including five years with various of the BBC (light) orchestras in the 1980s and the German Radio Orchestras (NDR and HR Frankfurt). I have most recently orchestrated for and conducted two programmes of popular music for the RLPO (Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra) which have been extremely popular with the wider public. As I am now sixty-two years of age, I have the personal time and resources to provide most of the musical orchestrations to the orchestra free of charge, and so none of the sponsorship money would be used for this purpose. To sponsor one concert of any of the above music programmes would require an input of up to, but not exceeding, £5,700.00, to guarantee against any unexpected losses. We do not require sponsorship to purchase instruments or music parts. The orchestra has forward bookings for 2010 and into 2011". Contact: Greg Francis, Musical Director.

NEW MOZART ORCHESTRA
The New Mozart Orchestra has a mission: it is to bring live orchestral music into the community, and specifically to Britain's youngsters. In this exciting new sponsorship opportunity, the nmo is preparing to deliver seven 'mini-residencies' throughout England. Each residency will comprise three days of schools' concerts and an 'academy' showcasing and encouraging talented local children, and will culminate in a public concert given by the nmo under the directorship of conductor Clive Fairbairn. As well as the association with high quality music-making and an organisation that contributes to the much-needed musical nourishment of Britain's children, many other benefits are available to the sponsor. These include premium advertising opportunities, brand exposure, the chance to participate in workshops with orchestra members, prime seating at concerts and complimentary tickets. The nmo has for many years been a leading provider of concert and outreach activity. And so, with this substantial experience of delivering outstanding performances to a wide variety of age groups, it is a natural progression to stimulate interest and access in local communities. Attracting fantastic reviews ("Last night it was impossible not to hang on every note in the performance that opened another evening with the New Mozart Orchestra under Clive Fairbairn" - The Times), the nmo can provide the opportunity to develop a mutually beneficial partnership, a relationship which could change the cultural and corporate lives of people across the length and breadth of the country. More information on joining such organisations as The Foundation for Sport and the Arts, Xerox UK and The Esmé Fairbairn Trust and sponsoring the nmo is available on request.

     AMOR/PL009     NOTTING HILL ORCHESTRA FOR FILM MUSIC
The Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music is a newly-formed, London-based orchestra made up of both professional and non-professional musicians. The purpose of the orchestra is to perform exclusively film music, popular classical pieces and arranged popular songs. Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music provides its members with a vehicle for enjoying and developing their musical talents and encourages awareness and appreciation of film music among its members and the public at large. "The orchestra offered its first concert in October 2014, just three months after it was founded, performing selected film soundtracks and popular classical works. The feedback was fantastic and many people who attended immediately expressed interest in future performances. The second concert was in April 2015 and tickets were completely sold out. Notting Hill Orchestra for Film Music is funded principally by non-professional member subscriptions and by concert ticket sales, but we need to rely on additional sources of income such as corporate sponsorship in order to grow and improve the quality of our performances. Money we raise through sponsorship allows us to pay for our professional musicians and music hire and thus to continue to bring our music to the local area. It also allows us to pay for film music repertoire copyrights that would otherwise be impossible for our players and audiences to enjoy. For sponsors, our website and concert programmes provide opportunities to bring your organisation to a wider audience, thus potentially generating new customer leads, and also enhancing your organisation's reputation in the community through sponsorship of the arts. We have several sponsorship packages designed to mutually benefit corporate sponsors as well as the orchestra". Contact: Ms Rossi Dusheva.

SAMYO - THE NATIONAL SOUTH ASIAN YOUTH ORCHESTRA
Samyo is looking for sponsors to support the development of young musicians trained in Indian classical music. The orchestra is looking for sponsorship support to fund the participation of young musicians and to help to create opportunities for young people to learn music. Samyo was created in 2002 with a grant from Youth Music and is now established as one of nine NYMOs (National Youth Music Organisations) funded by national charity Youth Music. The vision for Samyo was to create performance and development opportunities for young musicians under the age of eighteen, trained in the north and south Indian classical music styles. Members are selected through national auditions held every year and the orchestra is open to talented young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18. Within that age group, Samyo is open to both male and female participants from any ethnic, social or geographical background.     The Music ... Samyo is unique in Indian classical music, as it combines musicians and instruments trained in the largely divergent north and south Indian classical styles, an innovation only recently adopted even by professional and world class musicians. The orchestra commissions new pieces regularly, by some of the biggest names in Indian classical music, but also performs from the vast repertoire and improvisation frameworks of traditional music, handed down over generations. The instruments include sitar, Santoor, flute, tabla, Mridangam, violin, veena - and vocals, too.     Performances ... Since 2002, Samyo has presented concerts of between twelve and twenty-four members on stage, at venues or festivals including The Lowry, Greater Manchester, QEH, London, Symphony Hall, Birmingham, Peepul Centre, Leicester, British Museum, London, Festival of British Youth Orchestras, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Cadogan Hall (with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain), The Sage, Gateshead.     Training & Development ... All activities, concerts, rehearsals and workshops are free to participants, and the orchestra holds an annual Summer Retreat for creating new compositions, for team-building, technique work and rehearsals. Samyo members undergo regular rehearsals, but also require support in personal development, and in 2007 the orchestra initiated a plan for each musician to develop artistically through tailor-made workshops and individual sessions.    Outreach & Education ... To further the work of the orchestra, Samyo needs to reach new areas of the country and to inspire new musicians to join, through workshops and new performances. It is also developing an education plan to create a new teaching centre, and influence schools and colleges to have an experience of Indian classical music.

AMOR/003 THE COLLABORATIVE ORCHESTRAL SOCIETY
Following the critical success of their first album, The Collaborative Orchestral Society is looking for sponsorship to record its second album, with a view to touring. Defying all preconceptions of orchestral performance, the orchestra has created a new way for classically trained musicians to perform a rare genre-splicing breed of music influenced by drum and bass, club, dance, jazz, funk, world and contemporary classical music. The orchestra is a 22-piece ensemble creating original orchestral-based performance developed from collaborations with artists from contemporary, club, hip-hop, electronica and world music. Launched just two years ago with Spacer vs The Orchestra, as part of the hugely successful Serious Sampler series at the Spitz, the group went on to host a mass of collaborations at 291 Gallery, Shoreditch working with the likes of Jocelyn Pook, Joby Talbot and Spacer. Such musical adventures have won the orchestra an enviable reputation and following for taking orchestral performance to brand new audiences. They have since played at venues and festivals as diverse as The Big Chill, Cargo, the Royal Festival Hall (for David Axelrod to a sell out audience) and the Fontanone Festival, Rome. In autumn 2002 they returned to Rome. The orchestra aims to encourage new young audiences to experience orchestral-based performance by taking it out to non-traditional venues. It also offers young classically trained musicians the opportunity to experience a diverse range of performance that enhances their professional opportunities. Sponsors will have access to complimentary tickets to concerts, as well as acknowledgement in the album sleeve, at concerts and in all promotional material. Depending on what the sponsor is looking for, the orchestra can offer its services for the sponsor’s corporate events and help with brand image. Contact: Christopher Land, Financial Director.

"We are seeking some financial support in return for advertising and promotion. 1. Gifts for Dignitaries. We are told that we should expect a leading Dignitary from the local area to attend each of our concerts and have been advised by our agent to bring twelve gifts which can be publicly presented if this arises. These gifts have potential to lead to wider sales. We would like to find a whisky/other supplier who would be interested in supplying the gifts as promotional items. 2. Advertising in tour brochure. We are preparing a tour brochure, translated into Mandarin and handed out to the audiences at each concert. We are advised that 8,000 copies will be required. The cost of the brochure, which we have to fund ourselves, is expected to be of the order of £4,000.00. We are looking for a sponsor for the brochure, who can tailor all advertising to themselves, or for individual adverts at around £500.00 per half page. 3. Tour Sponsor. We would be pleased to hear from anyone who would wish to sponsor the whole tour. We are delighted to have received a grant from Creative Scotland, and the performers are also contributing towards costs. We would be pleased to find tour sponsor for £10,000.00, in return for which we would additionally promote the brand at all of our concerts from the stage, and distribute samples and literature as required".

AMOR/017 THE SKY ORCHESTRA
The Sky Orchestra is a vast, sensational, internationally touring performance artwork - a spectacular musical flying event that delivers an intimate and personal experience to a dreaming public. Seven hot air balloons take off at dawn, playing music developed specifically for the sleeping people below. A massive audio landscape is created on the ground as the balloons drift through the sky. All the performances have incited incredible enthusiasm and excitement from the public. Whole families have been seen squeezing out of Velux windows and grown men have run out of their houses wrapped in a towel to listen to the symphony and watch the balloons drift over their homes. Making national headline news the story and imagery of the orchestra's performances have spread around the globe from Vietnam to Canada. The BBC has covered The Sky Orchestra's UK performances extensively. As the project is so highly visible, this is an ideal opportunity for a sponsor to gain valuable time on screen by having their logo displayed on the balloon eenvelopes or baskets. In addition, audio equipment can be demonstrated by the quality of sounds produced in the air. Sponsors to date have included Sony Centre UK, IKEA and JVC. Contact: Rachel Drummond Haye, Development Manager. Address: The Sky Orchestra, 5 Langton Park, Southville, Bristol BS3 1EG. Tel.: 0117 929 0001. E-mail: rachel@da2.og.uk.

AMOR/019 ULSTER YOUTH ORCHESTRA
The Ulster Youth Orchestra was established in 1993 to give young people from across Northern Ireland the very best quality tuition, along with the chance to perform with the world’s leading musicians and conductors. It offers an opportunity for talented young musicians to take a significant step closer to realising their real potential and to take on an ambassadorial role for Northern Ireland in the national and international concert world. The orchestra encourages the development of musical talent regardless of whether or not there is the intention to pursue a career in music and it has a role in developing key life skills - communication, co-operation, respect, commitment, motivation and the ability to work as part of a team. It helps in the personal development of young people, building self-esteem and confidence and equipping them to contribute positively as a responsible citizen in our society. The orchestra holds an annual ten-day residential course in August for around 100 young people aged between 14 and 23. They have the opportunity to work with internationally renowned conductors and a team of tutors made up of top orchestral musicians from across the UK. The intensive tutoring and rehearsal is followed by public performances in major concert halls in Ireland and abroad. The Ulster Youth Orchestra Annual Residential Course and Concerts attract widespread publicity in the Belfast and local press on radio and television. The annual Belfast concert is recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster. To continue to maintain the high standard of UYO activities and to develop increased opportunities for our young people UYO requires support in many ways, e.g. support towards the core running of the organisation, support for a particular project or support towards members fees (in order to enable the orchestra to assist members in difficult circumstances and also to keep fees as low as possible). Benefits include: being associated with a high quality, cross community organisation providing educational opportunities and training for young people from Belfast and across Northern Ireland; acknowledgement on printed material; complimentary tickets; opportunities for corporate hospitality, receptions etc.; photo and public relations opportunities. Contact: Stanley Foreman, General Manager. Address: 109-113 Royal Avenue, Belfast BT1 1FF. Tel.: 0044 (0)2890 278287. E-mail: uyoni@tiscali.co.uk.
