The European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) is leaving London because of Brexit.
 
One of the main reasons why? Lack of clarity on freedom of movement for musicians working in the European Union (EU), and what any alternative would look like.
 
It’s the second orchestra to announce it’s leaving the UK since the Brext referendum last year, after the European Union Baroque Orchestra moved to Antwerp in part due to concerns over restricted freedom of movement for working musicians.
 
This is why we’re fighting for free movement for musicians post-Brexit.

Get involved: Read more about the EUYO and why it’s leaving via the Guardian.

Free movement for musicians is just one our five key Brexit issues. Find out more via our Brexit hub, theMU.org/Brexit.
