Share the Music – enrich the lives of our community’s most disadvantaged children and older adults
Melbourne Recital Centre is the place for quality music, where the intimacy and superb acoustic makes for unforgettable live performances. Donate to MRC’s Share the Music fund and make these enriching musical experiences available to everyone regardless of background or personal circumstances. All funds raised go directly to the purchase of tickets and transport for our community’s most disadvantaged children and adults.
Since its inception in 2010, Share the Music has enabled hundreds to attend MRC concerts at no cost – providing memorable experiences and enriching lives.
Recently, clients of Wintringham Housing and Wombat Housing & Support Services for elderly homeless men and women attended the Mostly Mozart series. With the support of generous donors, MRC hosted these groups with morning tea, a pre-performance talk and two wonderful concerts, as well as providing transport.
'Our clients come from socially disadvantaged and homeless backgrounds and therefore would never have the chance to attend this kind of event without financial support towards tickets and transport.’
Catherine Floy, Wintringham Housing, Rooming House & EACH Recreation Coordinator
In July, children from Alberton Primary School in south Gippsland attended MRC’s presentation of Peter and the Wolf, a wonderful combination of dance, theatrics and music that is part of MRC’s regular school holiday concert series. The children enjoyed the sights and sounds of MRC and the Melbourne CBD and were thrilled with the opportunity to see performances of this calibre. For many, it was their first time at a concert performance and for some, their first time in a concert hall.
