Members Council

Musica Viva’s Members Council is made up of individuals who have each made a significant contribution to the organisation. The Members Council creates a special two-way channel of communication with our stakeholders across the country, providing advocacy, support and advice to Musica Viva. Additionally, this group of people are the electoral body who nominate Board Directors, thus having a very direct impact on Musica Viva’s future.
