Case Study

Musica Viva Australia – Regional and Remote Touring

Founded in 1945, Musica Viva Australia (Musica Viva) has grown from a single ensemble to the largest chamber music organisation in the world, reaching approximately 350,000 people and presenting around 2,500 concerts in schools and performance venues across Australia each year. As one of Australia’s Major Performing Arts Companies, Musica Viva is committed to providing quality cultural content and experiences for a wide range of Australian audiences.  

Musica Viva is the largest independent provider of music education in Australia. The geographic reach of the Musica Viva In Schools (MVIS) program demonstrates the company’s commitment to redressing the inequity of access to quality music education currently experienced by schools which are disadvantaged due to their size, geographic location, socioeconomic circumstance or special needs. The program includes live performances, interactive workshops, digital teacher and student resources, and professional development opportunities for educators, giving teachers the skills and inspiration to confidently deliver a comprehensive music program for their students.

TFFF committed multi-year funding totalling $351,000 to support Musica Viva in delivering the MVIS program to schools and students throughout regional, rural and remote Queensland and the Northern Territory from 2015 to 2017. In 2017, the Best of Brass (BoB) quintet and Brisbane-based music teacher and musician, Dave Stuart, toured throughout Central West Queensland, including Quilpie, Charleville, Blackall, Longreach, Cloncurry, Mt Isa and Camooweal. The tour involved 32 performances in schools and more than 50 workshops for students, teachers and community members, as well as seven free Community Concerts supported by Arts Queensland.

“Dave Stuart was amazing, so helpful and knowledgeable. BoB was WONDERFUL too. Lovely people who are passionate about their jobs. [Their performance] was funny, engaging and relevant. It is very hard to engage children online however the performers were wonderful and did a really good job. Lots of children were answering questions in the chat box and providing feedback. It was so great to see kids engaged in learning about music!” – Mount Isa School of the Air.

“Thank you so much for your wonderful program yesterday. The kids had such a great time and so did I. It was honestly the most engaged our high school kids have ever been in a musical performance. Also, a teacher who was with Nicole (composer) yesterday afternoon sent me a message saying how fantastic the session was and how much she and the kids learned in an hour… I also got some excited text messages from teachers who attended the PD (teacher workshop) yesterday that were already talking about ways to include Nicole’s techniques into the classroom which is every music teacher’s dream!!!” – Cloncurry State School P-12.
