BASCA: Equality And Diversity In New Music Commissioning
23 May 2016
Exclusive research undertaken by BASCA has revealed the extent of the problems surrounding diversity and equality in regard to gender and ethnicity within the realms of composition commissions and classical music education.
Alongside this analysis, BASCA surveyed seven universities and conservatoires and also collected data from Sound and Music on participants at their Summer School and applicants to their professional development schemes.
The results have thrown up a wealth of brand new data and a fresh insight into exactly who is studying composition, who is qualifying at the highest level, and who is going on to secure the most prestigious commissions. More importantly, BASCA hopes, it has created a foundation on which a more diverse approach to commissioning and education can be built.
