To mark the fifth birthday the Centre is celebrating with a free music festival featuring a broad array of musical styles and genres including indie pop to experimental or classical to jazz. Audience participation is encouraged during the live performances and jam sessions.
You can head backstage as 45-minute guided tours will be held throughout the day, providing a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes (and into the ceiling) of the Centres acoustic design.
If you ever dreamed of performing at the Centre, you can take part in "The Big Sing" with Jonathon Welch AM with the award-winning Choir of Hard Knocks, now known as The Choir of Hope and Inspiration and THE CHO!R in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall for a 1200-voice choral extravaganza. It is open to one and all – come on your own, with friends and family or register your community choir. No prior singing experience necessary! Register online.
Guests can be entertained on board the No 1 tram from the State Library to the Centre which will feature busking musicians during the day and into the evening.
Mary Vallentine AO, CEO of Melbourne Recital Centre said "Melbourne Recital Centre is the city's home for music – it belongs to and has something to offer everyone. We're proud to know that it is a welcoming place where the entire community comes together to make and share great music."
A full range of activities will take place throughout the day. More information on all the events can be found here.
