FREE National Trust Members Event

National Trust Members are invited to this special presentation where Dr Rosemary Richards will discuss 'Memories of Musical Lives: Music and Dance in Personal Music Collections from Australia and New Zealand' (Parkville, Vic: Lyrebird Press Australia, 2022), which she co-edited with Dr Julja Szuster.

In the book, musicologists and historians explore aspects of music and dance in homes, on board ships, in hotels and in church in the long nineteenth century in Australia and New Zealand. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the event. Musical examples from the manuscript music collections of Georgiana McCrae (1804–90), who designed the National Trust property McCrae Homestead, will be provided by Clara Adams and David Adams.

This event is offered exclusively for National Trust of Australia (Victoria) Members. Spaces are limited and bookings are essential.
