Music in the Community

Sharing the joy of live music with the community.

Melbourne Recital Centre is proud to partner with diverse school and community groups, enabling the Centre’s Learning and Access programs to reach beyond the Centre’s walls.

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.

Melbourne Recital Centre’s Share the Music program.

Launched in 2010, Share the Music aims to enrich the lives of our community’s most disadvantaged children and adults and fill their day with the joy of music.

The program ensures the power of music is enjoyed by people who would otherwise not be able to attend, giving them the chance to become a part of our community of music lovers; to connect with music, musicians and with each other. Since 2010, Share the Music has provided transport and tickets for approximately 4000 children and adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.
