School holidays at MRC

School holidays at MRC Image

By Karina Schulz Wharwood

The Melbourne Recital Centre’s annual Music Play Family Festival returns to Southbank these summer school holidays.

From January 14 to 20, the four-day festival will be filled with big and mini concerts, workshops and plenty of free activities for children under 12.

Headlining the festival are Australian rockers Regurgitator, presenting their yet-to-be-released punk record written for kids.

Regurgitator member Quan Quansen said: “We’re ready to shout ‘til our voices are wrecked, if you’re ready to scream ‘til your parents are deaf!”

Paul Rissmann provides the perfect introduction to classical music for young audiences with his musical adventure, Stan and Mabel.

Elisabeth Murdoch Hall will host a 1000-voice choral where anyone is welcome to join, after registrating.

Guided by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s (MSO) Pizzicato Effect teacher, Karen Kyriakou, the free event will celebrate some of Australia’s favourite nursery rhymes.

For those who like rap, the hip-hop and electronica department of the youth music organisation is giving participants a crash course on writing and performing rap.

Kids can also perform on the open stage, create unique instruments out of “junk” and join the Junk Orchestra and explore a magical underwater world in Sea Sounds.

With G-rated performances, the festival is suitable for all kids who want to discover music, play instruments and make some noise.
