‘Our primary concern is always for the wellbeing of our patrons, artists and staff,’ saysMusica Viva CEO Hywel Sims.
‘We’re following government advice closely and have made the difficult
decision to cancel a tour with our close friends Piers Lane and the
Goldner String Quartet.’
‘We have also postponed Tuesday’s Melbourne Morning Masters concert and our Musica Viva In Schools activities for the rest of Term 1.’
‘This situation has profound implications for the whole performing
arts sector,’ Sims adds. ‘If you’re in a position to continue supporting
musicians, I urge you to consider doing so. We are working to find ways
to minimise the impact on our artists, many of whom rely on income from
our schools and concert tours.’
‘In the coming days, we’ll be discussing ways to continue providing
music to the Australian community. Please continue to visit our website
