2017 Featured Artists

Each year Musica Viva selects a diverse range of outstanding musicians to feature through its regional touring program, CountryWide. The artists available for touring in 2017 represent Australia’s best musicians and includes dynamic young ensembles as well as established musicians at the peak of their careers. The programs proposed are inspiring, innovative and with great appeal for varied audiences.

CountryWide offers regional communities music experiences with lasting impact; through extended experiences such as residencies, workshops or masterclasses, or through the experience of an outstanding concert by truly wonderful musicians. We partner with a range of regional presenters including performing arts centres, regional conservatoria, volunteer societies and regional arts development officers to bring inspiring music to regional areas


Travel to centres in regional NSW is subsidised through the support of Arts NSW. Musica Viva can book the artists, arrange all travel and accommodation, provide posters, flyers and program information.
