PMC continues to support live music, this time through sponsorship of The Stables in Milton Keynes.

Having attended shows at the legendary Milton Keynes music and education venue it warms my heart that PMC has reinforced its commitment to nurturing music talent and live music through sponsorship of The Stables.

Founded by John Dankworth and Cleo Laine in 1970 and initially housed in the old stable in the grounds of their home, The Stables popularity snowballed with the venue hosting around 50 concerts in its first year. Today it features over 350 shows a year and about 250 education events, which include the National Youth Music Camps.

During 2000 the venue was completely redeveloped and now includes two auditoriums: the Jim Marshall Auditorium which houses 438 people and the smaller Stage 2 with capacity for 100. The site has been the host of many world-famous artists, including Dave Brubeck, Joan Armatrading, Courtney Pine, Amy Winehouse, Nigel Kennedy, James Galway, Nils Lofgren, Steve Hackett, Marc Almond, to name just a few. National radio regularly broadcasts from The Stables, including the BBC Radio 2 series “Live from the Stables”.

Speaking on the importance of supporting live music, PMC's founder and owner, Peter Thomas, told StereoNET:

I've long been a regular visitor to The Stables and value the tremendous variety of artists they present and the hugely important education work they do. The late John Dankworth was, and Cleo Laine still is a big supporter of live music and music education, and I am extremely proud to be able to add PMC's name to the fantastic work done by the team at The Stables.

It's only by keeping music education at the fore and presenting live music that the hi-fi industry exists, so it is vital that we as an industry play our part in supporting the work of facilities like this.

PMC has equipped the recording studio facilities at The Stables with its professional monitor speakers and, throughout the theatre, it has installed its wafer2 on wall speakers to ensure the playback of music in the communal areas is of the highest quality and sounds every bit as good as the live music events.

PMC has also undertaken to be the sponsor of tickets for the venue's upcoming events.

Great stuff, PMC.
