‘A professional ballet company for international dancers of black and Asian descent. The company was founded in 2001 by our Artistic Director, Cassa Pancho MBE, in order to provide role models to young, aspiring black and Asian dancers. We aim to bring ballet to a more culturally diverse audience by celebrating black and Asian dancers in ballet. We perform and offer community driven classes for dancers and students, young and old. Our ultimate goal is to see a fundamental change in the number of black and Asian dancers in mainstream ballet companies, making that vision wonderfully unnecessary.’

‘The main aim for the Choir in any year is to raise money for Charity. Sometimes these concerts are for our own Charities but most are to support other organisations in their charitable work. The Choir is itself a Registered Charity and since 1987 has raised approaching £150,000 for Charity. Most choristers attend our own concerts with between 50 and 60 at the others. We also assist at Weddings and Funerals, where typically between 30 and 40 would attend. These smaller events can present some difficulty in finding enough volunteers NOT to sing ... We are keen to welcome new choir members and additions to our non singing supporters, “Friends Of Worcester Male Voice Choir” who are a much appreciated part of our team.‘

‘The Kinder Children’s Choirs is located in the beautiful hills of rural north Derbyshire, England. It was named after the famous Derbyshire Peak District landmark Kinder Scout ... We believe music is a real enrichment of a child’s development and education. We offer bursaries, so that children are not precluded for reasons of cost. There are also no voice tests or auditions to gain entry to the Choirs’ training programme. Our regular performances include prestigious venues, such as cathedrals and national concert halls. The overwhelming success of the children’s choirs led to the launch of an adult choir. The Kinder Chorus welcomes singers of all ages, irrespective of musical experience. Each season the Chorus performs with professional musicians at the Buxton Opera House.’

‘A community wind band that plays at a wide variety of events throughout the year but we are no longer a marching band . Our music is widely varied and chosen to suit the occasion and the available players ... Wareham Town Band has always contained a mixture of brass and reed instruments and still continues to do so to this day. This could possibly be an indication that the band’s roots lie in some earlier Village band but this is now a matter of pure conjecture. Certainly the Wareham Town Band predates many of the other bands in the Purbeck area, which were formed around the 1860’s as Brass Bands.‘

‘The official church of the Lord Mayor of London and the City of London Corporation and stands in the Yard of the Guildhall. It was re-built by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of 1666, but there has been a church on the site for around 900 years. After extensive damage in the Second World War, it was again re-built ... Every Monday at 1pm we hold a Piano Concert in the Church for about 50 minutes ... The piano in the church is quite special. It used to be owned by Sir Thomas Beecham, before it was purchased by the church ... Every Tuesday at 1pm we hold an Organ Concert in the Church for about 45 minutes ... St Lawrence has a wonderful organ which was built in 2001 by Johannes Klais Orgelbau, of Bonn, Germany ... Many people love to come into the peaceful atmosphere of the church and enjoy these special events.‘

Founded 1966: ‘The Choir gives four concerts a year, in and around Reading in Berkshire. Some are a cappella and others are with professional soloists & instrumentalists. The repertoire is very varied – from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Programmes are stimulating, sometimes challenging, and often include unusual or lesser known works. There is a particular love for and loyalty to the works of JS Bach but at the same time this is THE amateur choir presenting contemporary, different and yet beautifully accessible choral music’.
