MSO Ignite is designed to introduce new schools (both primary and secondary) to the joy of orchestral music. The program includes access to subsidised tickets and transport to help connect students and teachers with the MSO and ignite their lifelong love of music.

How does it work?

MSO Ignite is structured around three tiers of engagement. Schools enter the program at Tier 1 receiving, in their first year:

  • 50% ticketing discount: MSO For Schools concert series
  • Fully-subsided transport
  • An in-school workshop presented by MSO musicians
  • Pre-concert teacher information session
  • Curriculum-linked learning resources
  • Discounts to additional concerts, as available

Tier 2 offers school communities a range of ICSEA-dependent benefits in their second year of program participation.

At Tier 3, schools enjoy a 30% discount on all MSO products, for life (subject to the school booking two experiences per year).

The support I received from the staff at the MSO really helped me to step out of my comfort zone and plan these excursions!

Participation in MSO Ignite is by invitation only and the program is best suited to primary schools with an ICSEA below 1000 as recorded on the My School Website. Ignite is now closed for 2022 – please check back later in the year for information about 2023.
