Abstract

Diversity in Classical Music: Time for Action - builds on research carried out by the organisation, BASCA, which demonstrates that female and AAME composers still face barriers when it comes to receiving commissions for new compositions. The conference session examines historical perspectives on diversity in composition and examples of changes organisations can make to increase diversity in commissioned works.
