The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) has today (Friday 20 April) launched a survey into the impact on professional musicians’ work as a result of the EU referendum vote in June 2016. This survey is a continuation of research into the music profession and the effects of Brexit, following on from previous surveys in October 2016 and March 2017 which generated almost 1500 responses

Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians said:

‘Our previous surveys, conducted after the results of the EU referendum, revealed that the number one concern for musicians is the protection of freedom of movement post-Brexit.

In our latest survey, we are asking professional musicians to share their experiences of working in the European Union and whether there has been an immediate impact on their work since the UK voted to leave the EU two years ago.’

To take part in the survey please visit: The closing date is Friday 18 May 2018.
