‘Dedicated to producing recordings of the huge amount of top-notch classical music that the concert halls and major record companies are ignoring. We make a point of seeking out interesting composers from less familiar musical cultures and from all periods, in the Nordic and Baltic countries, in central and eastern Europe, Russia and further afield ... Toccata Classics, Toccata Press and Toccata Next are three sides of a triangle, all exploring unfamiliar aspects of classical music, Toccata Classics and Toccata Next via recordings, and Toccata Press via publishing, of books about music. The triangle will soon change shape with the launch of Toccata Music, which will publish music itself.‘

'Music Support exists because of the experiences of our founders and trustees. Our founders are veterans of the music industry and are all in recovery themselves, from various mental health and addiction issues. They all suffered alone with their problems, and saw countless colleagues, friends and heroes lose their careers, families and even their lives to poor mental health and/or addiction. They decided that enough was enough: a personal and confidential support service provider that understood the specific needs and problems of the music industry was necessary.'

'A UK-based early music ensemble dedicated to the performance of early music written by and for women ... We bring together internationally-acclaimed musicians and ground-breaking research to perform this fascinating and continually emerging repertoire. Our programmes illustrate the many faces of women musicians in the 16th and 17th centuries: courtiers, courtesans, actresses and cloistered nuns. There is always an element of story-telling, theatre, and surprise, in our performances, for the women who first made our music had lives as compelling as the music itself.'

'Founded in or around 1080 as the London headquarters of the archbishops of Canterbury, the medieval church of St Mary-le-Bow survived three devastating collapses before being completely destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. Rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren, it was destroyed once more in 1941 but was again rebuilt and re-consecrated in 1964 ... For many hundreds of years the bells of St Mary-le-Bow have proclaimed the church’s presence in the heart of the City of London and they continue to do so today.' Distinctive programme of concerts and recitals.

‘A chamber choir based in the Yorkshire Dales. From its modest start in 2007 when a group of people sang unaccompanied choral works around the kitchen table, the choir has developed into an established group of twenty members. Based in Long Preston, but drawing on singers from the surrounding area, we give at least two concerts each year in the Craven area of the Yorkshire Dales ... Anyone wishing to audition for the choir should be able to demonstrate an ability to sing in tune and to blend well with other voices as well as good sight reading and listening skills. Experience of singing in a small group is a further useful asset. Auditions can take place at any time of the year.‘

‘We're a friendly bunch, and we always welcome new members ... Normally a technique approaching Grade 8 standard is expected, but equally important is experience of, and ability in, ensemble playing. There is an informal audition process for all wind and brass. String players are not normally asked to audition but to attend two taster rehearsals, after which the player may be invited to join ... We play a wide range of music. Typically we will open a concert with an overture, followed by a concerto, often with a guest soloist, then play a symphony in the 2nd half ... Our "season" consists of concerts in Autumn, Spring and Summer.‘

When performing works requiring instrumental accompaniments, the choir draws on high-calibre early-music specialists. Now well-established in the North of England as a versatile chamber group, the choir sings its regular concert series in York Minster to capacity audiences ... The Ebor Singers are proud to be an associate choir of York Minster.‘
