AMT/PL003 BEGINNERS PIANO
Sheena Munro is a music teacher/songwriter who has written a musical theatre adaptation of the novel by Eleanor Farjeon, Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard. Ms Farjeon has written some eighty novels, many poems and her most famous song, Morning Has Broken. All the songs are original, comprising twenty-two musical numbers, including solos, character songs, three ballets, a maypole dance, a blacksmith's tap dance, an overture, a theme song done for a solo and chorus, and a hymn in eight parts. Beginners Piano already have some interest from a West End theatre which has assured them that they will make themselves available to see the show. The show is for all ages but should appeal most to children and teenagers, at whom the book was originally aimed. However, there is enough going on to entertain everyone. They have written permission from the Farjeon Estate to proceed with this production and if it is successful to possibly write a sequel. The cast of twenty-seven and orchestra are all from Edinburgh and the surrounding area and it is a great opportunity for them to show off their talents. The libretto, piano libretto, CD and orchestrations are now completed and the organisers would be happy to send the package to anyone interested. Contact: Miss Sheena Munro.

WEST END KIDS
West End Kids is a unique centre of excellence based in London for young performers aged 10-18 who show exceptional talent and dedication in musical theatre and the performing arts. In turn, the company provides the "Kids" with challenging performance experiences via workshop style coaching. Since its creation in 2001, West End Kids has provided dedicated students with all the tools they need to progress into outstanding performers, with focus on singing, choreography, attitude, mental-toughness, work ethic and expectation. West End Kids is very proud of the fact that a very high proportion of its pupils have successfully applied to the performing arts school/college of their choice including the Brits School, Sylvia Young and Mountview. Furthermore when its students move into work professionally, there is no shock to the system as they have been working to the same standards for years. This makes the transition smooth for them and ensures they are a pleasure for directors to work with. Recently, a West End Kid, Holly-Anne Hull, won the Disney Channel's prestigious My Camp Rock competition. This was a great honour for both West End Kids and its Managing Director Martin Williams, who has provided personal vocal tuition to Holly-Anne for many years. Moreover, Holly-Anne displayed perfectly the standards that all West End Kids aspire to and indeed achieve. West End Kids is very active in using many forms of the media both for communication with its pupils and promotion of the company. Its website www.westendkids.co.uk receives 120,000 hits per year. West End Kids is also very active in Facebook and YouTube where it publicises its various activities and performances and as a consequence has a loyal following of thousands of fans throughout the world. The cost of running West End Kids is, not surprisingly, very expensive. In particular, London rehearsal venues are not cheap, therefore the company faces constant financial constraints. On the other hand the company is committed to providing professional advanced coaching to young performers with talent, regardless of financial circumstance. Faced with this persistent financial conundrum, West End Kids is looking for sponsorship of its rehearsal overheads so that it can continue to offer its current first class coaching programme to young musical theatre talent rather than restrict it merely to those who can afford it. West End Kids is confident that sponsors of the company will benefit from its growing national recognition via the ever-increasing demand for public performances, open workshops and media promotion. Indeed, this is a wonderful opportunity for a sponsor to gain excellent publicity, especially within the youth sector as West End Kids would be looking to promote the sponsor's name at all its events throughout the year. Over the last twelve months, the West End Kids brand was seen by in excess of 300,000 consumers. If such sponsorship fits in with your profile in this sector West End Kids would be delighted to discuss this matter. Contact: Mrs Julie-Ann Harris.

AMT/001 AWARDS FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS
Giving awards worth £55,000 per year to individual talented young musicians towards instrument or tuition costs is only part of what Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) does in trying to help them to achieve their potential. AYM also aims to help families struggling to meet the costs of having a musically talented child by collaborating with other music organisations. The projects the organisation has devised provide opportunities for young people to, say, borrow a small-size or outstandingly good instrument; attend a specialist ensemble course; or participate in local masterclasses. Sponsorship opportunities exist for all these projects, which are eminently “brand-able”. Involvement in supporting “excellence” in the community is something that potential sponsors would consider a valuable addition to their public perception, say AYM. Director Bridget Sime would be happy to talk to anyone interested in either providing awards for certain categories of instrument, eg “76 Trombones” (or fewer!); or learning more about their collaborative projects. Patrons of AYM are Richard Baker, Nicholas Daniel, Sir John Drummond, Evelyn Glennie, Nigel Kennedy, Sir Jonathan Miller, Murray Perahia, Sir Simon Rattle and Marisa Robles. AYM has support from many leading trusts and foundations and from Allianz Cornhill Musical Insurance. Contact: Bridget Sime, Director.

AMT/002 BELOW STAIRS MUSICAL (for cancer research)
Below Stairs, premièred in May 2002 in Chesham. All future stagings will generate money for Cancer Research UK Ltd., as the composer has good cause to thank such a charity, having survived cancers of the colon, liver and lung. The aim now is to mount a production at a large theatre, such as the 1,000-seater Swan in High Wycombe, with the realistic expectation that £25,000 upfront sponsorship will generate at least double that for Cancer Research UK. The resulting high profile exposure will then stimulate the UK amdram circuit to put the show on, thus generating a stream of cash in the future for the charity. “Below Stairs” is a tuneful, feel-good musical set in 1914 at the outbreak of WW1, its star being housemaid Lucy. The website www.BelowStairsShow.com gives full details of the show’s history, its plot, the rave reviews, the cast demands, and so on. Scores and libs are available for assessment hire. There is a warts-and-all video of the première but the show has changed a lot since 2002 and the intention now is to produce a top-quality video of the July Staines production, along with a cast sound recording on CD. Among the show’s fans are BBC newsreader Patrick Lunt – who augmented the chorus sound in the first production – and actor/writer Simon Williams (Major Bellamy in TV’s Upstairs, Downstairs), who describes the show as ‘fabulous’. Sponsors of the proposed large-scale charity production will double their investment for cancer research, delight audiences with a feel-good show with memorable tunes and create a stimulus for other amateur operatic societies to stage the work to benefit charity.

AMT/003 FlaTwOrkMUSIC
The compulsory music and marking system used for FlaTwOrkMUSIC competitions was originally created for use in conjunction with current British Dressage Freestyle2Music testing. The objective was to help redress the current system's imbalance of having 70% of marks being awarded for technical merit while allowing only a subjective and arbitrary 'general impression' mark for the music element. Consideration was also given to the fact that current competitors who have music professionally fitted to an existing floor plan are in fact gaining advantage from a skill that is not theirs. The newly written Compulsory Music system underwent extensive trials in New Zealand from November 2009 to March 2010. The trials themselves were very successful, and the choices of attractive music and simple application concept gave rise to many 'straight dressage' competitors asking to run the compulsory section as a stand-alone competition, so that they could experience the joy they witnessed in others riding to music. The standalone competitions went ahead at Level 2/3 (Novice/Elementary) in three New Zealand venues with all entrants completing questionnaires about their experience. The overriding conclusions as to why so many dressage riders had not previously ridden Freestyle2Music were related to a lack of ability and time needed to produce suitable music for themselves: costs of having it done professionally were also a major disincentive. While everyone who took part perceived that they themselves were more relaxed and that their horses moved better while riding to music, they believed that sourcing suitable music and the editing required to make an acceptable soundtrack for Freestyle was a skill unrelated to equestrianism and many found the prospect of doing it themselves bemusing.

AMT/005 KARUNA RECORDS
Karuna Records (founded 1996) is currently seeking sponsorship for a series of (classical) CDs, designed to promote young performers. The series comprises five discs, all of which are based around 20th Century music, with some unrecorded works. The sponsor’s company logo will be integrated into the cover design and the back page of the CD booklet will be available for the sponsor to place an advert. In addition to this there will be an interactive CD-ROM section on the CD which will have space for more advertising with links to websites, etc. There will also be an opportunity for a radio style advert at the end of the disc. Promotional plans include magazine advertorials/advertisements and a series of concerts. Karuna tell us that they have already had interest from the music press, with articles promised for later on in the year and intend to create as big an impact on the classical music world as possible. They are also trying to interest a TV production company in making a documentary on the making of the discs. They would also be available to your company for promotional activities. The main aim of the series is to promote very talented young performers - as they are the future of classical music, not digitally remastered performances from the early 20th Century as some record companies would have us believe. Karuna Records want to involve industry, through sponsorship, as they believe that a partnership between the arts and industry is the best way that the future of classical music can be secured in a world that is awash with popular culture.

AMT/008 LONGPLAYER TRUST
Longplayer is a 1,000-year musical composition by Jem Finer. Originally commissioned by Artangel, Longplayer is now cared for by the Longplayer Trust, a non-profit organisation with charitable status. Longplayer, generated by computer, is situated inside London's only lighthouse at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The music has been playing since December 1999 and is scheduled to repeat itself by December 2999. The trust is planning to build a device to generate Longplayer mechanically, parallel to the computer. The machine will be using 250 Tibetan singing bowls and be up to 10 metres high. The estimated cost is £2,000,000. In order to raise the money, the trust has to produce a feasibility study, which will cost about £30,000, and is therefore looking for sponsorship support from sponsors who share their passion for time, in the hope that the project can be sustained for future generations.

AMT/009 LUKE JERRAM
Luke Jerram is seeking partners for a significant public artwork. Aeolus - an Acoustic Wind Pavilion, is an ambitious new work created by UK artist Luke Jerram (
www.lukejerram.com). Aeolus was the ruler of the four winds in Greek mythology. Aeolus is a giant singing sculpture that responds to the wind, providing a wonderful audio-visual experience. It is a spectacular optical and acoustic pavilion that has been developed by Jerram and a specialist team of engineers from the University of Southampton. Fabricated in steel and the size of a small house, it is the outcome of research into Aeolian harps and sound chambers. Just like wind turbines, it relies on the wind to animate it. Aeolus is touring the UK in 2011 and will be visited by thousands, on windy hilltops and urban wastelands. Download an information pack at www.aeolus.org.uk. There are opportunities for organisations to be involved and benefit from the international profile that involvement brings. "The work already has significant funding in place and we now need support, either in cash or in kind, to take this exciting new work on tour and share it with audiences throughout the country". Contact: Carolyn Black. Address: Pervasive Media Studio, Leadworks, Anchor Square, Harbourside, Bristol BS1 5DB. Tel.: 0117 9157237. E-mail: info@lukejerram.com
