Our musicians are the beating heart of the MSO, devoting countless hours to providing music that motivates and inspires.

We invite you to support the music and the orchestra you love while getting to know your favourite player at the same time. Through our Adopt a Musician program, you can honour their talent, artistry, and life-long commitment to music.

Involvement in the MSO’s Adopt a Musician program is often far more than building relationships between donors and musicians - it fosters a genuine, reciprocal transfer of knowledge, experience and learning for all involved.

“Being ‘adopted’ by Michael and Jenny means that our connection goes beyond that of musician and music lover. They know more about the person behind the violin and, wonderfully for me, I have been able to get to know them too, feeling such warmth and support from them. Leaning on Michael for his sage counsel has been an added bonus for me. I certainly am one lucky adoptee!”

– Sophie Rowell, Concertmaster

Joining the Adopt a Musician program enables you to:

  • Develop a relationship with a musician of your choice.
  • Watch and enjoy the musical career of your adoptee – many of our players are involved in other projects alongside the MSO.
  • Gain a deeper insight into the world of your musician.
  • Enjoy relaxed social occasions with your musician, other adopters and the MSO family.
  • Receive recognition in MSO concert programs and the MSO website.
