Young, Female and Entrepreneurial?

An interdisciplinary and innovative research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (Grant reference: ES/K008765/1)

‘Young, Female and entrepreneurial?’ explores the working lives of classically trained female musicians. The project sheds light on the classical music profession, but also makes more far-reaching contributions to our understanding of work in the cultural sector and in the contemporary neoliberal era. What are the ups and downs of working in classical music? Do musicians have to be ‘entrepreneurial’ to succeed? And what is it like to be a woman in the profession? Project outputs include scholarly publications, research reports, public events, seminars and conference talks.
