Currently, the Farrell Family Foundation supports our music education touring to the Far Far West, North Coast, Far North Coast and Hunter regions of NSW. The funding provided by the Farrell Family Foundation provides opportunities for children living in these areas to access Musica Viva’s award-winning music education program.
In 2011 Musica Viva delivered a total of 76 concerts to 52 schools and 10,115 students these regions in New South Wales. In addition, 8 professional learning courses have been delivered to a total of 101 teachers.
