Proudly Supported by Life-Space, the Official Health Partner of the MSO
Developing a holistic health program which supports our greatest asset – our Orchestra musicians
In 2015, the University of Sydney released the ‘Sound Practice’ report – a five-year research study into occupational health and safety for musicians. The MSO was one of six major Australian symphony orchestras to participate in the project.
The Sound Practice research findings recommended orchestras incorporate health initiatives in key areas of health education, early reporting of injury and injury prevention, promotion of a positive health culture, physical preparedness, sound monitoring and mental health support.
These findings will form the bedrock of a new preventative health program for the permanent musicians of the MSO, aimed at providing holistic health and wellbeing support year-round. The program is developed in conjunction with the Orchestra musicians, the MSO and Life-Space Probiotics.
Using music content and activations to create positive wellbeing opportunities for our MSO audience
Together with Life-Space Probiotics, the Official Health Partner of the MSO, we’ve developed a suite of music-related content that will help deliver well-deserved moments of well-being back to our MSO community.
