ISM launches Performers Survey

The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) has launched a survey of performing musicians.

If you are a professional performing musician we would like to hear your views on a range of issues including intellectual property rights, the treatment of freelance performers, orchestral musicians’ rights, and live music.

You don't have to be an ISM member to take part in the survey and your participation will help us gather information on the issues affecting performing musicians today. This information will help us form a picture of the needs of UK performers and will inform our future advocacy and professional development plans in this area. You can access the survey here:

The ISM, as the professional body for musicians in the UK, represents performers from across the music profession. Professional folk musicians, jazz musicians, cathedral lay-clerks and organists, orchestral performers and soloists of all types play an integral role in the representative work of the Society.

Performers are at the heart of the UK’s music profession and in the last year the ISM’s Performers Special Interest Group (SIG) has helped campaign against unfair National Insurance charges for self-employed musicians and supported our efforts to protect musicians working in the music industry.
