Young Artists Programs

The contribution of young performers and composers to Australian culture is vital to the nation’s artistic future. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s Young Artist Development Programs enable talented young Australians to establish valuable links with the Orchestra, offering a platform for the extension of their skills and presentation of their work.

The MSO’s commitment to young artists also incorporates performance engagements for the brightest emerging artists in Australia – conductors, composers, instrumentalists and singers. Through this approach, musicians identified by the MSO as of outstanding artistic promise and at a vital stage of their professional careers, take up concert engagement and promotion opportunities each season.
