Nicola Benedetti, Alison Balsom OBE, Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Sir Simon Rattle were invited, at short notice on the 18th June, to join a virtual meeting about the future of the music industry by the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden…

Nicola Benedetti shared a summary of what they said on her Facebook Page:

“We have all had innumerable conversations with many people across the sector and what we put across was a shared sentiment and rallying cry on behalf of the classical music industry. We want to share what was said in order to invite more dialogue and communication. We all know we are stronger when we work together.

We are very grateful to have been offered the chance to speak directly with DCMS and trust our voices has been heard. The ball is now firmly in the DCMS court and we all eagerly await a response.

This is a summary of what we said. #keepmusicgoing”
