MEAA Musicians

The MEAA musicians section represents Australia’s professional musicians. This includes SOMA (Symphony Orchestra Musician Association), AFMA (Australian Freelance Musicians Association) and TOMA (Theatre Orchestra Musicians Association).

The MEAA musicians section aims to protect and develop the pay, conditions and professional interest of its members.
