We are The FullTone Orchestra and on the 20th July 2019, we are putting on a festival of orchestral music in the Devizes Market Place.
Four concerts in one day, with acoustic support acts performing in between, and it’s going to be epic! We want to bring exciting orchestral music to the town in an easy and accessible way. We will have a massive stage, with a superb light show and there will be stalls to give the Market Place a real festival feel.
Wiltshire Council have already very kindly agreed to sponsor us half of the money, we now need to match this from other sponsors/donations.
We start with a family themed concert, The Fulltone Music School Choir will open it, then you'll hear 50 strong orchestra play themes from Last Night of the Proms. Big, beautiful music in the centre of our town. Albert Hall, eat your heart out!
Our second concert is 'Iconic Themes' - epic music from films, 'Star Wars', 'Lord of the Rings', 'Star Trek', 'James Bond' etc. For those of you who came to our very first concert, you'll remember it was mind blowing!
'Classical Rock' is up next with our friends from The Invitation Theatre Company (TITCO) joining us for a big 'Queen' set again - YES! Get in!
As the sun sets, we end with 'Electronic Themes', starting in the 1970s with 'Chariots of Fire' and 'Tubular Bells' moving right through the 1980s, 'Popcorn' might make an appearance, then into the 1990s where we turn up the volume and end in Ibiza! It will be utterly AWESOME!
All the musicians are donating their time we need to raise funds to pay for the staging, lights, sound and all the other bits you need to transform a town square into Wembley!
So this is where you come in - this is a free to attend event. But for it to happen we have to raise another £5000. We need to MATCH what we have already! So, whatever you can give, help us make this happen. Think of it, perhaps, as purchasing a ticket for the event. £5, £10, £20 - whatever you can afford or think your 'ticket' would be worth, please help.
Businesses, if you sponsor over £100, you'll get your name on the poster! And we'll thank you 100 times in all our press!
Punters, if you sponsor £20 or over, you'll get a free festival T-shirt! What's not to like?!
IT'S SO EXCITING! The town centre has never seen anything like this before! Help us make it happen!
