Music is our passion. Our goal is to bring it to as many people as possible.
Musica Viva seeks to be the leading organisation in the world for connecting audiences with chamber music, inspiring personal fulfillment and cultural vibrancy. In all that we do, we are committed to:
* live music performances of quality, diversity, challenge and joy;
* the unique intimacy of small musical ensembles; and
* life-long engagement with music.
Founded in 1945, Musica Viva is Australia’s oldest independent professional performing arts organisation. As an independent non-profit arts organisation, Musica Viva relies on the essential support of donors, funding partners, government support, corporate partners, and the many volunteers who freely give their time.
Thanks to their help, Musica Viva continues to share the delights of chamber music with audiences throughout Australia, presenting over 2400 concerts in capital cities, regional communities and schools – not to mention the national and international artists we support throughout our vast range of programs.
Musica Viva continues to challenge the boundaries of chamber music, turning it from its conservative origins into a rich celebration of intimacy, vitality and artistry.
In 2006, Musica Viva was awarded for Distinguished Services to Australian Music in the Australian Classical Music Awards – a first for an institution rather than an individual.
Music enriches our lives and often becomes inextricably linked with the most poignant moments in them.
The aim remains simply, as always, ‘music to inspire’.
