The Melbourne Symphony Orchetra (MSO) has also announced a new international agreement with the Royal Academy of Music, London. The three-year program will facilitate cross-cultural exchange between Australian and British musicians studying at the MSO Academy and Royal Academy. This is the MSO’s second major UK partnership, following its engagement with the London Symphony Orchestra last year.
The first intake for the new annual exchange program will commence in 2025 and will see five members of each academy spending 10 to 14 days with their international counterparts. The program will foster interpersonal and networking relationships across the Australian and British music industries.
