MCO to receive RISE Funding

Our musicians had the opportunity to meet Federal Minister for the Arts, Paul Fletcher MP, at the announcement of the sixth round of RISE funding this morning at Melbourne Recital Centre. The musicians performed at the announcement, which saw over 60 arts organisations throughout Australia receive $19.5M of funding to support sustaining and expanding their work, following two years of pandemic restrictions. MCO is the recipient of $390,000 enabling work in 2022 and 2023.
