British Double Reed Society’s Fair Access Commitments

Share this page

We’re delighted that British Double Reed Society have joined us as partners in signing up to our Fair Access Principles in August 2023.

Developed through consultation with a broad range of composers and organisations, Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles are designed to act as a code of best practice for running successful, open and inclusive artist development programmes, competitions and awards for composers.

In signing up, British Double Reed Society are committing to enact the Fair Access Principles across their work over the next two years. We recognise that organisations will need time to think about and implement changes within their programmes.

You can read their reasons for signing up and future commitments the organisation have made below.

British Double Reed Society’s Statement

“We are thrilled to have signed up to the Fair Access Principles. Embracing inclusivity and ensuring accessibility hold significant importance for the British Double Reed Society, as we endeavour to advance double reed music across the UK. Our heartfelt gratitude extends to the entire team at Sound and Music for conceiving this framework, which will aid us in connecting with a wide range of individuals and dismantling any barriers that might have previously been problematic.” 

– James Turnbull, Chair
