About Us

Welcome to Classic Melbourne, where we celebrate the breadth and extent of classical music performance in Melbourne: our fine performers, excellent venues, keen audiences and supporters of classical music.

Classic Melbourne is a website especially for lovers of fine classical music, whether they are performers, students or audiences. The site will spread awareness of the wealth of performance and classical music activity in Melbourne and beyond.

We aim to encourage audiences to consider more concert going, especially to hear younger musicians who are the professionals of the future.

We offer reviews of the best classical music in Melbourne. However, while celebrating excellence, we suggest that there’s plenty to enjoy in community and student performance – usually at a low cost!

Classic Melbourne believes in maintaining a high standard of reviewing, and will offer ideas for reviewing concerts and recorded music.

It will also lead retired audiences in recalling and writing about their favourite classical music experiences.
