Hitting the right note for Music Week

MMWMelbourne Music Week is coming to Parliament House this year, with two events scheduled.

To kick off the week, Live at the Steps will be a free, all-ages gig on the steps of Parliament House on 11 November.

Featuring The Jungle Giants, Gretta Ray, Aunty Donna and Philly, the event is being coordinated by a talented group of young people from The Push Inc (pictured) in partnership with the Victorian Parliament.

It’s giving young Victorians interested in the music industry an opportunity to coordinate a major music event and, at the same time, find out a bit more about their parliament.

New Slang

The following week, on 15 and 16 November, Hush: An Evening of Quiet Music will bring some of the nation’s leading songwriters into our grand heritage building, with one key twist - the audience must remain pin-drop silent.

The award-winning series will see much-loved local artists Dan Kelly, Teeth & Tongue, Melody Pool, Sui Zhen, Jess Rebeiro, Grand Salvo, Man Made Mountain and The Grand Magoozi perform intense, intimate, stripped-back sets in the parliament’s historic Queen’s Hall, Federation Room and Library. Tickets for Hush are available from the Melbourne Music Week website.
