Mini concerts in the Salon
Short and sweet mini concerts will be offered to children every day in the intimate Salon.
Teeny Tiny Stevies
Join the Beth and Byll from Teeny Tiny Stevies and their cute, furry friends, Rock-A-Bye-Baby sessions led by the ‘high-priestess of Melbourne’s soul scene’ (Beat), Kylie Auldist and more.
Turn trash into treasure by creating your own unique instrument out of ‘junk’ & recycled materials and join the Junk Orchestra. Learn to rap with Defron from PushIt! or enjoy a game of sound and physical play by trying out twenty-five bright red megaphones of different shapes and sizes scattered around the Recital Centre.
