Argento Brass is a brass quintet hailing from all over the country, with the majority situated in Leicestershire and the East Midlands. "We formed in 2012 as an idea between friends and family, sharing a mutual love for brass and music as a whole. Our members, all currently under the age of thirty, have taken their passion for music with them to various universities, including the musically-acclaimed University of Huddersfield. We are able to perform from a huge variety of music from classical masterpieces to the latest chart-topping pop songs. Arrangements are especially chosen to showcase the diversity of the group, including original arrangements by the Chinery brothers. We are available for hire for all occasions from weddings to corporate functions. We're unafraid of challenge - we are happy to tailor music to any occasion. If there is a piece of music not listed on our website, we will be happy to accommodate your needs. We would like to improve our music and perform in many concerts throughout the year and be able to devote full time to the group. Our music can inspire and entertain all ages and we already have several good reviews from people we have worked with. To take the group to its full potential is up to you!"

CLIC SARGENT
The CLIC Sargent Annual Christmas Concert at the Royal Albert Hall is an extremely popular event with its supporters and is a sellout to an audience of 4,000. This is a very attractive pre-Christmas marketing/sponsorship opportunity. The event, which features a 1,500 strong choir of children from schools throughout London and the south east, has featured celebrity headliners such as the hugely popular Lee Ryan (formerly with boy band Blue), Joss Stone, Lamar (The Fame Academy), Billie Piper, Hear'Say and Miss Dynamite. The show presents a host of professional singers and variety performances, including circus acts and dance groups, making this a thoroughly modern and highly entertaining way to celebrate the festive season. Past concerts have attracted a host of star supporters amongst the 4,000 strong audience, with recent attendees including Cherie Booth QC (CLIC Sargent Patron), Annie Lennox, Eddie Jordan, Ian Wright and Lady Helen Taylor (CLIC Sargent Ambassador). This year's event is sure to be no exception, with celebrities hoping to help ensure the Christmas Celebration will once again be a resounding success for CLIC Sargent and the many hundreds of families it aids and supports. This family festive evening is an extremely successful event and the Title Sponsor will be synonymous with this high-profile charity concert. "We will offer you maximum brand exposure to the thousands of concert attendees and our wider audience, before and throughout the Christmas Celebration".

LIBERA

The distinctive sound of Libera has travelled the world in the last few years. The group's albums have topped both mainstream and classical charts in many countries and their recordings hold their place in top-tens alongside major artists like Bocelli. The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as "normal" and "ordinary". However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. The singers of Libera, who are aged seven to sixteen, attend many different local schools in south London and come from a variety of backgrounds. Although they are boys and they sing, they do not think of themselves as choirboys, but rather as an alternative kind of boy band. While the unique sound of Libera may be impossible to pigeonhole, its universal appeal has endeared the group to fans all over the world, particularly in the US, the UK, the Philippines, South Korea and Japan, where their CDs top the mainstream and classical charts and where they sell out large capacity concert halls - ideal situations for sponsorship exposure. "We would love to be able to tour more, and to bring our unique music to even more people; however we are restricted by our financial resources. We are enormously grateful for all the time volunteered by parents and others, to say nothing of the boys' time. However, we have to pay the bills - and taking the boys on tour is expensive. We are keen that ticket prices should remain relatively inexpensive, but it costs on average £250k pa to train the boys and maintain the current level of touring. Income from ticket sales is generally insufficient to cover touring costs with twenty-five boys and ten support staff, so we rely on kind gifts from generous supporters. Libera is a not-for-profit, UK registered charity. If you have enjoyed our music and would like to consider making a donation, either as a one-off gift or on a regular monthly basis, we would be eternally grateful. Contributions can be made online by visiting this donations link on our website - http://www.libera.org.uk/about/donations - or by contacting us. The generosity of our supporters is what makes it possible for us to continue to create and share the unique sound of Libera worldwide, whilst giving the boys an unparalleled musical education and fantastic opportunities to perform".

LITESOUND UK
The Idea: a concert in London featuring two (possible three) acts that have appeared in the Eurovision Song Contest. "Hidden musical gems can be found, so please don't be put off by the Eurovision tag!" Venue and date: to be confirmed, but planning for June/July 2016 at a London nightclub. "Headline act will be Litesound, from Belarus - founded in 2005 by brothers Dmitry and Vladimir Karyakin, they are one of the top music acts of their country and recipients of several awards including People's Music Choice Award 2015, Eurostar Award 2012, Finalist in New Wave Stars 2010 and Song of the Year Award 2009 and 2008. Eager to expand their fanbase outside of Belarus, they have performed in Italy, Portugal, Belgium and Holland. This will be their first visit to the UK, so all help is needed to make this a success. Second act is Alex Larke, one half of Electro Velvet, the 2015 UK Eurovision entrant, who has an album to promote. If the fundraising goal is reached, a third act might be included. Check out Litesound's promotional video on YouTube:

AMP/003 ROBERT HYLTON URBAN CLASSICISM
Robert Hylton Urban Classicism (RHUC) produce, perform and educate through hip hop, contemporary dance, music, theatre and film, to enrich people through shared culture, life long learning and new experience. RHUC's left of centre approach to hip hop, theatre, film and contemporary dance choreography has carved a company whose work is groundbreaking, accessible and thought-provoking. RHUC was born in 1999 from an idea of returning to a form of expression experienced by Robert Hylton. This, coupled with newly found techniques, direction and ongoing discipline, gave Robert a basis for Urban Classicism. Today RHUC is much more than that early vision of fusion that Robert held: it is a foundation for the future of the next generation whose hearts and dreams also reside within the realms of hip hop, contemporary dance, theatre, education and film. RHUC now boasts core staff, performers, technical staff and some twenty collaborators and followers, with supporters and clients from around the UK and the world. RHUC tours have included small to middle-scale theatres throughout the UK over its lifespan, with its reputation having spread as far afield as Australia, New Zealand, Bangkok, Indonesia, Taiwan, Belgium, Copenhagen, Cyprus, Holland, Italy, Mozambique, South Africa, Lithuania, Prague, Zagreb and Cuba. UK venues include the South Bank Centre, Robin Howard Theatre, The Place, Lilian Baylis - Sadlers Wells and LABAN. RHUC has drawn audiences and participants from all cultural backgrounds and age groups, its eclectic style attracting from the ages of eight to eighty years old. Past sponsors, commissioners and supporters include the South Bank Centre, the National Gallery, LABAN and Vestax Europe. "This young hip-hop artist uses a mix of forms to take dance to entertaining and dramatic new places", The Times, UK; "The six dancers swagger about both in formation and with solo turns, showcasing kicks, backspins and improbably angled headstands", The Guardian, UK; "The meeting of two dance cultures, with each successfully crossing the other's boundaries", The Jakarta Post, Indonesia. RHUC is seeking to engage with commercial partners in a manner that creates cultural, social, educational and financial opportunities. Contact: Rajpal Pardesi, Senior Manager.
