Ben Fleetwood Smyth
Devoted to BAM, he draws all the ideas together and makes them happen. He’s a professional musician and has also discovered he’s surprisingly good at getting people to say yes. He'd love you to sign up to our e-alert.
A literary genius. Books, books, and more books. A wordsmith and man of letters. Now a DPhil student back at Oxford. His ideas, his help and support, and his perfectionism are utterly invaluable.
A formidable barrister who specialises in trusts. What John doesn’t know about classical literature is not worth knowing, he’s a gentleman, a scholar and a great friend of BAM.
A superb accountant whose dedication to the championing of certain British musicians is unparalleled; droll, well-read, BAM’s number-crunching demi-god, and the first of us to say yes to BAM.
Dr James MacMillan CBE
Libby Purves OBE
Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the London Contemporary Orchestra. BAM’s partner for the first Series and contemporary music sage. Brilliant.
A fine musician and lover of the great panoply of British music. Richard is our stalwart friend and supporter; he's also our répétiteur and pianist for every concert.
His year-round support and site specific efforts during our concerts are utterly invaluable.
Simon Henry and Jon Ashby at Cantate
The hands in charge of our superb annual concert programmes.

Generous to a fault and always makes sure the BAM Series' concert after parties are run with astonishing precision.
Red-haired beauty with a sharp intellect. Our greatest enthusiast, she keeps our ideas focussed and on target.
Shrewd musicologist, superb musician, and serial blogger Gavin is a source of great musical understanding and experience.
Website designers and developers, creative advisors, and so much more. We are indebted to them and give our very heartfelt thanks and admiration.
She has delightfully engaged for many years with our Director on all things to do with music, philosophy, and the wider meaning of these things.
