For well over a century, our community has been the driving force of the MSO, and for that we are truly grateful.

As a not for profit arts organisation, we rely on the generosity of others to support the vast programs we deliver each year. Our current focus is to rebuild this great orchestra and return to full capacity, delivering all the concerts, learning programs and events you love. A gift today of any amount will ensure this can happen.

See below to explore the many ways you can support the MSO.

The MSO is a registered charity and gifts of $2 and more are fully tax-deductible.

Give the Gift of Music

The MSO is deeply committed to commissioning new orchestral works from our country’s most talented composers. Already in 2021, we have presented more than a dozen of our commissions, including works by Deborah Cheetham AO, MSO percussionist, Rob Cossom, our Composer in Residence, Paul Grabowsky AO, and emerging composer, May Lyon.

Developing our artform by commissioning new works for the orchestral canon provides Australian artists and musicians with real opportunities to innovate and create. In turn, their works speak to audiences in ways non-Australian works cannot, connecting individuals on a deeper level through shared experiences of place.

Commissioning is a crucial part of our DNA and for the ongoing life of the orchestral artform in this country, but we cannot do it alone.
