Nonclassical’s Fair Access Commitments

Share this page

We’re delighted that nonclassical joined us as partners in signing up to our Fair Access Principles in May 2021.

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, nonclassical 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.

nonclassical’s Statement

Supporting emerging artists is at the heart of Nonclassical’s work across our events, record label and artist development programmes. Since being founded in 2004 by composer Gabriel Prokofiev, we have taken classical music out of the concert hall and into unusual spaces, reaching diverse audiences across the UK and beyond. 

We want to ensure that the artists that we work with reflect modern Britain. In signing up to Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles, we’re making a commitment to continually question what more we can do to welcome artists from all backgrounds into our organisation.”

– Natalia Franklin Pierce, Executive Director of Nonclassical
