Enjoy a casual attitude to sound and movement

Melbourne Recital Centre’s series of Relaxed Performances provides the same exceptional artists in the best place to hear, with an environment particularly suitable for audience members with autism, learning disabilities or sensory sensitivities.

This Relaxed Performance features the Melbourne Guitar Quartet (MGQ), formed in 2005 as a vibrant guitar based ensemble dedicated to the development of chamber music repertoire for the instrument. Utilising the unique concept of the Guitar Family of instruments (classical bass guitar, baritone guitar, standard guitar, treble guitar and octave guitar), the award-winning MGQ are continuously cultivating ground-breaking arrangements of major works. MGQ is one of only a few quartets in Australia, aiming to welcome audiences who are curious about hearing new music and established favourites through the rich and beautiful sound of the guitar quartet.

Supported by The Calvert-Jones Foundation and The Samuel Nissen Charitable Foundation.
