Researcher Sarah Gatford has put out a call for freelance professionals musicians in UK-based orchestras, to take part in her investigation into self-care strategies and their impact on wellbeing:

Are you an orchestral musician?

For my final research project, I’m exploring the strategies for self-care that you, as a professional orchestral musician, use and how they impact your wellbeing.

If you’re over 18, English speaking, working as a freelance professional orchestral musician in a UK-based orchestra and this is your main source of income, this is your invitation to participate in my research.

Participation will involve talking part in a 60 – 90 minute online interview. To get involved, please contact Sarah Gatford at:
