Everyone deserves the best live music, so please share your talents with communities across NSW!

Musica Viva Australia collaborates with a range of concert presenters including performing arts centres, the regional conservatorium network, volunteer music societies, and festivals. Through the support of Create NSW, we level the playing field for regional presenters and their audiences by assisting with contract administration, arranging and paying for artists’ domestic travel and accommodation, advising on specific technical and artistic needs, and complementing local marketing efforts. This puts regional presenters on a more equal footing with their metropolitan colleagues – all they need is the fee.


Expressions of interest are now open. From the applications, we will select approximately 10 diverse soloists or small ensembles to be promoted on our website and directly to presenters across NSW. Ideally, we look to create short tours of two to five concerts; however, this can vary depending on presenter need.

Each year we offer presenters a diverse and enticing selection of ensemble musicians and programs, including classical chamber music, music from diverse cultural backgrounds, and music-centred works which cross into other artforms. We’re interested in hearing from artists who are outstanding musicians, excellent communicators, and who can offer workshops and other community engagement activities in addition to concerts.

This program is broadly intended to support opportunities for artists living in Australia in 2025. Funding for international airfares is not available.


We welcome and encourage applications from First Nations people, people who identify as having disability, people who identify as LGBTIQA+, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. 

If at any stage of the process you require any accommodation due to a disability or having access needs, please contact Sean at or 02 8394 6662.
