Invest in our cultural future

Your help matters

Not surprisingly, discovering, showcasing, providing opportunities and recognition programmes require significant resources, both financial and non-financial.

There are many ways individuals, groups and organisations can assist in supporting MOST® in its varied programmes and activities, which include:

  • Audition, performance and career development for young musicians, instrumentalists, performing artists and opera singers;
  • Development programmes and opportunities for professional musicians, performing artists and educators;
  • Recognition of excellence through awards, scholarships and grants;
  • Management and consultancy services for competitions, events, awards, scholarships, prizes and grants.


Every dollar counts. Established in 1982 MOST® has presented career development and education opportunities, awards, scholarships and grants to musicians, conductors and opera singers through various programmes and activities.

Individual Sponsorship & Support

By becoming a MOST® sponsor, you join a community of like-minded people with a passionate commitment to support musicians, instrumentalists and performing artists.

A MOST® sponsorship might involve an opportunity to invest in one of our existing programs, through the establishment of an award, scholarship or prize; or MOST® can work with you to tailor an activity to a specific area of (your) interest.

Bequests, Foundations & Legacy Programmes

A number of MOST® activities started as individual or family bequests.

What better way to honour your own or the wishes of a loved one than to establish an ongoing legacy in a specific area of creative or musical interest. For example, the Marianne Mathy Scholarship ('The Mathy'), first awarded in 1982, remains the featured award of the IFAC Australian Singing Competition; the Armstrong-Martin Scholarship, first awarded in 1977, remains the respected award within one of our major Professional Development programmes, the Opera Awards (Australia).

MOST® is experienced in managing the personal and legal issues involved in the establishment of bequests – and has a proven record in the development and administration of sucessful legacy progammes.
