WASO are pleased to introduce MSWA as our inaugural ‘Supporting Music and Wellbeing’ Partner.

MSWA provides vital support and services to people living with neurological conditions in Western Australia, including multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease Brain and acquired brain injury.

MSWA are committed to promoting music as medicine for the mind and making music more accessible to a larger audience and what better way to do this than partnering with the largest arts organisation in the state.


“We’re absolutely delighted to partner with WASO again this year. We know that music has therapeutic benefits for the brain and can be especially powerful for those living with a neurological condition. Last year through our partnership we were able to make music more accessible to a younger audience and this year we look forward to bringing more music to more Western Australians.” MSWA CEO, Marcus Stafford AM

“WASO is delighted to have MSWA on board for 2020 as our Masters Series partner. Our organisations share a passion to strengthen the role music has to play in wellbeing, and by working together we can create incredible benefits for all West Australians to share.” Mark Coughlan, Chief Executive Officer – West Australian Symphony Orchestra

MSWA will proudly present our 2020 Masters Series starting on 6 & 7 March with Absolute Beethoven with the Australian String Quartet.

MSWA plays a vital role in educating the broader community, liaising with government and other relevant bodies on related issues, and advocating for the rights of people with neurological conditions and disability in general.

The partnership between WASO and MSWA recognises a shared commitment to enriching the lives of people through music; creating unique events and better points of access to reach new audiences.
