Aged Care

Enjoying music is a life-long journey and should be accessible for everyone.

Through our Music Always and Share the Music programs, Melbourne Recital Centre provides access to high quality live music performances for aged care residents.

Those in community care can also go behind the music with a number of in-Centre programs that enhance the performance experience such as master classes and the Free Music series. Explore true musical engagement here.

Free Music in the Salon

Melbourne Recital Centre opens the doors of its intimate Salon on one day each month from March to December for FREE open rehearsals featuring the very best of Melbourne’s chamber musicians returning in 2024.

Music Always

Continuing the life-long journey of music enjoyment, the Music Always program brings world-class ensembles to not-for-profit aged care across Victoria.


Relaxed Performances

Promoting a casual approach to sound and movement, the Centre’s series of Relaxed Performances provides the same exceptional artists in the best place to hear, with an environment specifically suited for audiences with sensory sensitivities.


Share the Music

Research reveals that both children and adults benefit emotionally, intellectually, socially and even physically from the shared experience of live music. Here at the Centre we take pride in being able to create engaging live music experiences for people of all ages with diverse music interests and different backgrounds. Launched in 2010, our Share the Music program aims to enrich the lives of children and adults in our community who face barriers to access.
