Description

We Need to Talk About: Diversity in Orchestras 

Over 10% of the UK population identify as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), but do our orchestras reflect this?

As our society becomes increasingly diverse the lack of BAME people working as orchestral musicians becomes more apparent.   

Diversity is one of the most talked about issues of our age, especially in the music industry. Music should be enhanced by musicians from all our communities and the music industry should reflect the multitude of cultures in the UK. If diversity is a collective responsibility, then what can we do to ensure our orchestras reflect the society we live in?

Join Dr Claire Mera-Nelson, Director of Music at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, Chi-chi Nwanoku MBE, founder of CHINEKE! and speakers from the CHINEKE! Orchestra.

As we discuss:

  • Why diversity matters.
  • Barriers to participation and engagement.
  • Is the Industry doing enough to diversify our orchestras?
  • Who’s responsible?
  • Mentoring schemes and professional development courses for BAME musicians.

Book your ticket and help us tackle the issue!
