The DRMC has been funding, facilitating and teaching community music for over thirty years. The Dandenong Ranges Music Council Inc. is assisted by the Yarra Ranges Council.

What's happening in 2014?

The DRMC wants to hear from musicians, composers, community groups, schools and individuals about new music ideas and projects for 2014.  Does the community need a composers' collective, a hurey gurdey orchestra or even a kerosene tin percussion group?  Perhaps there are hidden bassoons, oboes and cor anglais players just waiting for an opportunity.  Tell us at drmc.org.au or phone: Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays 9754 6566
