Musica Viva wins Helpmann Award!

In the world of Musica Viva, Tafelmusik, Andreas Scholl and the Tokyo String Quartet are big names. But it’s not every day we get to rub shoulders with big names like Cate Blanchett and Hugh Jackman. The 2012 Helpmann Awards ceremony was our chance to share a stage with these performers and many others. The Helpmann Awards are also a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of those who don’t necessarily see the limelight on a regular basis – costume designers, choreographers, sound and lighting designers and many other talented people without whom live performance in Australia would not be the same.

Musica Viva congratulates all the winners of the 2012 Helpmann Awards. We are also very pleased to receive the award for Best Chamber and/or Instrumental Ensemble Concert for our presentation of Tafelmusik’s ‘The Galileo Project: Music of the Spheres’. A large team at Musica Viva and venues around the country helped to make this concert tour possible, but we especially congratulate the musicians and creative team of Tafelmusik for creating such a fantastic concert and thank them for their dedication in sharing it with Australian audiences.

Musica Viva presents over 2,300 concerts a year in major venues in capital cities, in regional centres, and in schools around the country. It was a joy to include Tafelmusik in our 2012 season.

    Many many thanks to everyone at Musica Viva for being such great hosts to us all. And especially to Arnold and Tegan who were with us every step of the way.
