The Amadeus Society is a group of passionate music lovers and advocates in Sydney and Melbourne who have joined together to support the extraordinary artistic initiatives of Musica Viva.
Membership of The Society contributes directly to the Artistic Initiatives Fund, which provides necessary funding to bring otherwise unattainable stellar international artists to Australia for our International Concert Series.
In 2019, the group is supporting the Australian tour of American ensemble the Emerson String Quartet.
Previous artists supported by the Amadeus Society include Maxim Vengerov, Tafelmusik, Gidon Kremer, Sabine Meyer, Eighth Blackbird, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment & Rachel Podger and the creation of an entirely new chamber opera, Voyage to the Moon in 2016.
Members of Musica Viva’s Amadeus Society are invited to three private salon performances by International Concert Series artists; are treated to interval drinks and exclusive events with Artistic Director, Paul Kildea.
