"Due to the impact of COVID related restrictions, we are no longer able to bring you Ensemble Q on Tuesday 10 August, 7:30pm at Perth Concert Hall. However, we're delighted to announce that we'll now be joined by Wind Quintet Plus for a concert at the same time and in the same venue. With their concerts labelled by critics as an 'immaculately executed performance burst into joyful exuberance', WA-based ensemble Wind Quintet Plus have made a name for themselves with their dynamic and adventurous programming. Comprised of leading Australian soloists, the musicians combine the wind quintet with percussion to create innovative performances unlike any other. They will be presenting a program of Debussy, Piazzolla, Edwards, and more. Learn more here. Thank you for your continued support in these unpredictable times."

Monday 5 July, 2021

"Due to the current restrictions we have made the decision to move the concert to the 31st of July. On this new date we will be able to operate at full capacity, rather than having to turn patrons away. We understand that some patrons may not be able to attend on this new date, but we hope that it will allow more to come to our performance than would be allowed under the current restrictions. We are grateful to you for supporting us in our mission to change lives through music, especially in these challenging times. We look forward to seeing you at the event on the 31st of July!"

"We have made the difficult decision to cancel the live performance of Bower, the Genevieve Lacey and Marshall McGuire concert on 15 July at Perth Concert Hall, due to the impact of COVID related restrictions. As a national company, we know how much you enjoy gathering to hear music from Musica Viva, so we are in the process of adapting our work to suit the current environment. As soon as details are confirmed, we'll be in touch to advise you of the next steps."
