Free Music

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre


Melbourne Recital Centre opens the doors of its intimate Primrose Potter Salon on one day each month from April to December for FREE open rehearsals featuring the very best of Melbourne’s chamber musicians.

About Free Music

On each selected day the artists will use this opportunity to rehearse new works, new programs and try out new ideas for you, in this informal open and free event.

Just turn up any time during the session – the doors will always be open, so you can come and go as you please. And you might get to hear your favorite artists, or someone completely new to you – you’ll only discover if you come along!

But note, these aren’t concerts, but rather an insight into the secret workings of our finest ensembles and performers – a rare treat to witness the creation of a new program.

COVID Safety

Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
