Multivocal timeline – music history

Old Quad

The history of music at Melbourne is as unique as this layered city. Browse this timeline to brush up on all things musical in our University’s history and prepare for upcoming Multivocal exhibition at Old Quad, co-presented by Old Quad and the Grainger Museum.

Timeline commissioned by Prof. Gary McPherson in consultation with Prof. Kerry Murphy and Dr. Jen Hill for the Celebration of 125th founding of the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
