……. Square Music Festival 2004
Sponsorship Proposal

A. Introduction
……. Square is the site of a national award winning project to restore a magnificent Georgian square to its former glory. The project started in September 1999 and has been completed in 2004. The restoration work has created an impressive and tranquil event space in the heart of ……… Center. The broad range and high quality of both City Council and externally promoted events is an indication of the attractiveness of the square and serves to celebrate the completed work.

……. is musically and culturally a diverse city. A key strand of …….'s bid for European Capital of Culture was to create more platforms for and a wider public exposure of high quality and diverse contemporary music in the City. …….'s designation as a cultural city of excellence brings with it some recognition of the vibrant local music scene. To celebrate that, and as part of ……. City Council's continuing commitment to the promotion and celebration of the City's culture.
New Jazz 2002 and 2003 were exciting programmes of after work and evening concerts on ……. Square in august featuring around 20 musical artistes, interspersed with alternative cabaret and performance poetry. We are currently considering keeping with New Jazz 2004 or renaming the event to reflect an anticipated broader musical programme.
The programmes ranged from up-tempo Mozambique inspired township jazz, to music described as "jazz ambient trance". Many have featured on national radio and released recordings on labels in ……. and as far away as Tokyo. The line ups included ensembles led by accomplished musicians such as JohnTaylor, Andy Hague, Kevin Figes and Emma Hutchinson, and bands such as Big Fish, The Blessing, The Organelles and Dub Orchestra.
Also featured was King Cotton, a compelling and ambitious 19 strong Community based jazz musical project with music written in a New Jazz style describing the history of Cotton making in Barton Hill …….. This was a stunning line up of musicians from the East ……. Jazz Club and the piece describes a little known but very important story of …….'s Working class history with implications for understanding the way ……. is today.

The aims of the concert series were:
a. to showcase to audiences emergent artists and a diverse range of contemporary music.
b. to develop new audiences for contemporary music through attracting a broader mix of concert attendees eg. office workers, families and local residents, as well as contemporary music aficionados.
c. to make the concerts as accessible and family friendly as possible, through free admission, by staging the events on a well serviced accessible site, with catering provision and hospitality, etc.
d. to try out a new model for programming concerts in open spaces, with more challenging and experimental artistes.
e. to conduct audience/market research to gain a better understanding of audience needs and market potential in terms of live music promotion.
Team has been commissioned to undertake this work.

New Jazz 2002 tested out the idea of using ……. Square for such events. New Jazz 2003 built on that success, but also developed and extended the programme. This is both in terms of increasing the number of events and the range of performers featured. This year, the series was marketed through the specially commissioned www….  website, 20,000 programmes, posters, banners, LED screen video clips, invitations and a press and media profiling through venue, evening post and radio and broadcast partners.
The event has established a strong identity and secured popular local support. However, opportunities now exist to expand the programme, improve the overall audience experience and significantly realize the events publicity potential.
……. City Council is seeking to develop a two until three year sponsorship of the ……. Square Music Festival, based on exciting plans to develop the content of the event and raise its profile still further.
