Future secured for music comps
The Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and its sister event for the Asia Pacific region will be delivered by Sturt St institution Musica Viva in partnership with the Melbourne Recital Centre (MRC) and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM).
Held every four years, the competition is regarded as one of the most prestigious competitions of its kind and attracts international audiences.
The Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley, said it was a great example of our local creative organisations working together to achieve a fantastic result for artists and the city.
“Bringing together Australia’s national chamber music organisation, the best in the country, and our elite training academy for classical musicians will give the competitions a leading edge,” he said.
Musica Viva CEO Mary Jo Capps said she was honoured to be working with MRC and ANAM to take the competitions to the next level.
The Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition will be held in 2018 and the Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition will be held in 2020.
