Beyond The Centre – Music for Victoria

Since 2016, Melbourne Recital Centre has been supported by RACV Music for Victoria and Creative Victoria to support music making in regional Victoria.

To date, 30 ensembles have performed 30 concerts across Victoria in Benalla, Bendigo, Ballarat, Castlemaine, Dayelsford, Geelong, Healesville, Kerang, Mildura, Montrose, Stratford, Traralgon, Upwey, Wangaratta and Warburton to more than 3,000 people.

The superb touring artists were selected from those who perform concerts at Melbourne Recital Centre and have included international, interstate and local musicians like Australian icons Paul Grabowsky and Vince Jones at Ballarat Mining Exchange, Finnish pianist Paavali Jumpanen at Mildura Arts Centre, Hungarian-style gypsy folk trio Stiletto Sisters on the lawns of the Kerang Town Hall and Australia’s acclaimed classical music ensemble Flinders Quartet at Upper Yarra Arts Centre in Warburton.

Melbourne Recital Centre believes that music should be available to all Victorians no matter where they live. Working in partnership with regional presenters from across Victoria, we look forward to bringing music to your town soon.
