Book an artist

Everyone deserves the finest live music. Each year, Musica Viva Australia selects a diverse range of outstanding musicians for our regional touring program, supporting regional presenters across NSW. In 2025, we feature some of Australia’s greatest talent, including dynamic emerging ensembles as well as established musicians at the peak of their careers. The programs are inspiring and innovative, with great appeal for varied audiences.

Musica Viva Australia offers regional communities events with lasting impact: whether through engagement activities such as residencies, workshops or masterclasses; ‘meet the artist’ post-concert chats, or simply an unforgettable performance with exceptional artists.

Musica Viva Australia can book the artists, arrange all travel and accommodation, and provide other practical support such as posters, flyers and information about the music and performers. Our artists’ travel and accommodation in regional NSW is subsidised through our Create NSW funding.

We additionally welcome enquiries from other states, and city presenters, about collaborations outside this program.
