Support Musica Viva



“We believe that music’s an essential part of life. Musica Viva brings us the best music with reasonably priced tickets so we thought we’d offer additional support. Though we can’t give large gifts, we realised that our smaller, regular donations were still valuable. By being public about our donation, we hope that more people will join us as supporters.”
Dr. Arn Sprogis

Given life by the passions, gifts and commitment of our Founders, Musica Viva is now regarded worldwide as an unrivalled force for transformative artistic innovation. Our education programs reach more than 272,000 children every year, and we support Australia's emerging musicians through commissions, masterclasses, festivals and free student seats at our concerts.

All of this is made possible by support from individuals who contribute to our work in a number of ways:

Teach Music


Leave Your Legacy


Keep Music Alive


Musica Viva relies on the generosity of subscribers, corporate supporters and government partners. But without the support of individual donors, we would be unable to maintain the high standards in education and performance that you've come to expect from us.

“Commissioning music had never crossed my mind before I heard Julian Burnside's Peggy Glanville-Hicks' address in 2004. One point he made was that if no one commissioned music, there'd be a huge gap in our culture. That resonated with me, so too did his suggestion that if you couldn't afford to do it yourself, you could get together with a bunch of others and pool your resources…”
