Why Let's Do Music?

 WHY ‘LET’S DO MUSIC’? Merilyn Burt explains
I had been thinking about this concept for a while. Like many single women, there are times when I miss the opportunity to ‘discuss’ events with other likeminded people (note: I am saying people – not just women).
In my immediate friendship group there is no one who is interested in classical music and I saw that I needed to create an opportunity to address this. So I wanted to see if others will join me in attending monthly concerts with a social touch – meeting beforehand to introduce ourselves and chat over coffee; maybe even having a drink afterwards to discuss the performance.
The concerts are well-priced and feature interesting performers and programs.  They are mostly held in The Salon, a small intimate space with limited seating, in the style of Theatre in the Round.
I have chosen a 6pm time spot in the belief that, like me, many people enjoy early evening performances. The Recital Centre is easy to access, on foot from St Kilda Road or by No.1 tram, or there is parking in the NGV/Arts Centre car park.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
