FutureMakers is an exciting new artist development program from Musica Viva, the world’s largest presenter of chamber and ensemble music.

Under the direction of Artistic Director Genevieve Lacey, FutureMakers will empower leading young virtuosi to become Australia’s next generation of outstanding musical performers.

Every two years a select group of young musicians will be offered a bespoke and holistic range of experiences and connections to develop their skills and networks, allowing them to think broadly about their art and the world and create new horizons, attitudes and conventions.

The members of woodwind ensemble Arcadia Winds (formerly Arcadia Quintet) are the 2015-2017 FutureMakers musicians. We invite you to join them on their FutureMakers journey.
