Melbourne Recital Centre is inspiring kids and families during the April school holidays with two jam-packed days of creative fun at Music Play Family Festival.

Families can enjoy Australia’s favourite entertainers and new ways to learn, listen,
play and discover music together.

Peter Combe’s (13 April) fun, silly and incredibly catchy songs have made him a household name. Classics like ‘Wash Your Face in Orange Juice’ (Mr Clicketty Cane), ‘Spaghetti Bolognaise’ and ‘Juicy Juicy Green Grass’ are impossible not to sing along to – luckily, that’s encouraged! Peter Combe performs his best songs with singers the Fabulous Combettes and delightful video projections.

Teeny Tiny Stevies (12 April) – sisters Byll and Beth Stephen – is on a mission to prove kids’ music can appeal to adults too. The duo has clearly hit the nail on the head with its winning combination of folk-pop songs and angelic vocals that have sold out gigs and racked up millions of views online.

Melbourne band All Day Fritz (13 April) opens your eyes to the weird, wacky and wonderful world of music with funky tunes, classic songs and go-go moves. Another great act broadening children’s musical horizons is Declan the Music Man (12 April) who performs on 25 unique musical instruments. Musical adventures continue for little ones (0-4) in Song Play (12 & 13 April), an enlightening workshop based around a special theme, led by Clare Zabrowarny.

Outdoors in the Forecourt, make your own antennae and join Polyglot Theatre’s giant colony of Ants (12 & 13 April). The comically large insects roam around, pulling you into their curious world and inviting you to walk a mile in their six-legged shoes. Ants feature a newly commissioned score generously supported by Melbourne Recital Centre’s Betty Amsden Bequest.

Tickets from $10
