The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO) and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance have announced a long term partnership aimed at improving the diversity of the UK orchestral profession, and increasing professional development for young musicians in the South West of England. The two organisations will collaborate to identify talented and committed instrumentalists and composers from communities currently under-represented in the profession include Black & Minority Ethnic, disable musicians and those from certain socio-economic backgrounds, the young musicians will then receive mentoring, support, advice and professional insight to help them in their careers.

The collaboration builds on the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Change Makers project to create a training programme involving disabled conductor James Rose, and on Trinity Laban's Side by Side series where professional orchestral players perform alongside Trinity Laban students.
