'Sutton Coldfield Chamber Orchestra was established in 1975 by musicians in the Sutton Coldfield area who wanted to play together. Since then, the orchestra has grown to approximately fifty regular members and became Sutton Coldfield Orchestra to reflect its size ... The orchestra’s conductors vary from concert to concert – we don’t have a regular conductor, preferring to have professional guest conductors. This keeps the orchestra on its toes musically, as it has to adapt to different styles and methods of conducting ... The core repertoire of the orchestra is music of the Classical period, which usually does not require more than ten or twelve wind instruments, but often extra players are brought in to play the larger scale pieces of the Romantic era. SCO has also performed a number of pieces by 20th century British composers, including Britten, Walton, Butterworth, Arnold and Berkeley.'

'New comers are always welcome and there is no voice test or other selection procedure. You can just come along to see if you like it for a few weeks before joining ... Most newcomers have not sung for many years and are not welsh speaking. Yes! We do sing some songs in Welsh but most non-welsh speaking members manage this after a period of time. The rewards of singing in a choir are numerous and very enjoyable. There are thought to be considerable benefits to health and well-being. (Some of our members are in their 80’s and 90’s).'

'The Music in Norwich group started in 2004 with some seed funding from the Arts Council and Norwich City Council to build audiences and better communicate the wealth of music offered in the city. With a large number of active groups it was also important to develop an anti-clash calendar for music promoters and groups in the city, and a greater awareness of planning and programming. The universal agreement was to produce a joint music listing calendar which would show the composite offering of classical music in the city as well as enabling all members to be informed of each others plans and activities. The aim is to promote music more widely across Norwich, Norfolk and the country.'

'Helps outstanding young musicians to develop and sustain international careers with awards that fund tailor-made projects. However, the Trust considers the value of receiving a BBT Award or Fellowship to be far greater than the direct financial assistance given. It aims to provide advice, guidance and contacts as well as public relations exposure for artists’ BBT-funded projects. Winners receive a high profile on the BBT website, with audio and video material included where appropriate, and via its news and e-newsletters. BBT artists join a family that supports them in advancing their careers.'

Formed in 1984: 'We have our own team of set builders who each year strive for bigger and better things. In the past we have had a real working fountain, we flew Katisha out in a balloon in 'The Mikado', and hopefully this year will prove no exception. The Company is approximately 40 strong and has performed every September since 1984. For our Millennium Project we tackled the "original" G& S 'Thespis': a UK premiere of this version'.

Established 1861: 'We were formed as a village band, with the patronage of the Church and Duke of Devonshire, to teach music without charge, provide an educational and constructive pastime, develop community spirit and entertain. The band has earned an enviable repuation and has taught many hundreds to play. Today, Burbage Band continues to promote and represent Burbage and Buxton both locally and abroad at a whole host of differing concerts, functions and celebrations, providing music in a wide variety of styles, and has active members from every generation. The band is one of the most successful, busiest and friendliest bands in the area and is renowned for having trained most of its own players as well as many now playing with more famous bands. Lessons, instrument loan and insurance are provided free of charge to anyone with the commitment to learn. This provision is popular with all ages, but particularly where pupils also use the instruments at school'.
