Royal Academy of Music facing calls for investigation into ‘casting couch’ culture after 15 complaints of sexual harassment

“The MU aims to combat such behaviour in musicians’ workplaces and to assist in creating safe space for musicians, to ensure that everyone has an equal level of protection from sexual harassment wherever they work. We have set up an email account, [email protected], for any musician to share instances of sexism, harassment and abuse experienced in the industry.”

The Royal Academy of Music, part of University College London, was founded in 1822 and has produced musicians of the ilk of Sir Henry Wood, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Lesley Garrett, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Sir Elton John and Annie Lennox.

The academy refused to comment or confirm it was investigating the complaints.
