Bringing music to the ears of regional Victorians.

As part of RACV’s Community Partnership program, Melbourne Recital Centre is delighted to have been selected as RACV’s Arts partner.

Together RACV and Melbourne Recital Centre will present the RACV Music for Victoria program in regional Victoria; a series with a diverse range of music styles delivered by some of Victoria’s finest artists and ensembles.

The series will be presented in at least five regional Victorian areas between 2016 and 2018. In addition to the sessions, there will be meet-the-artist and master class-style events for regional students expanding the overall reach of the program to more than 3,000 Victorians.

RACV will contribute $160,000 to the two year program, which is made possible through the RACV Community Partnership program.

RACV General Manager Public Affairs Peter Daly said RACV is proud to be supporting a worthy organisation dedicated to bringing music to regional Victoria:

“The RACV Music for Victoria program will build regional connections through a diverse range of music and provide opportunities for local students to learn from world class musicians.”

Melbourne Recital Centre CEO Mary Vallentine said the partnership marks a significant contribution to regional communities and artists:

“Melbourne Recital Centre is delighted to be partnering with RACV and regional Victorian music presenters to provide more opportunities for outstanding musicians to be heard throughout Victoria. With RACV’s help, we are realising our ambition to move beyond the Centre’s physical performance spaces in Melbourne, enabling the inspirational shared experience of live music to be enjoyed by all.”

The RACV Music for Victoria program commenced with the “Classical Tracks” series in the Yarra Ranges in May 2016 and will extend to Central Victoria, including Castlemaine and Daylesford; Northwest including Mildura, with further regions and towns to be added to the tour.
