DRMC presents Community Music for all ages and abilities
Through Music Arts our mission is to create and strengthen community bonds and wellbeing
We believe music is a core human need and that group music making has a binding effect on people and community.
We engage with professional artists locally and internationally
The Dandenong Ranges Music Council Incorporated is an arts organisation serving the Shire of Yarra Ranges and beyond. The office is located in Upwey in the Dandenong Ranges, east of Melbourne. The DRMC has been funding, facilitating and teaching community music for over thirty years. The Dandenong Ranges Music Council Inc. is assisted by Yarra Ranges Council.
We believe community music is for everyone, beginner to professional. It enriches our lives and gives us opportunities locally to sing, play, perform, jam, create and listen.
The DRMC hosted the AusNet presentation of 'Energising Your Community’ equipment grants on Tuesday 25 July at 6pm. Thirteen Yarra Ranges community groups have received a total of $20,000 in grants from AusNet Services as part of a program to support projects delivering positive long-term benefits for the region.
Recipients were presented with their cheques by Gary Hocking, AusNet Services’ Customer and Support Team Manager. The DRMC will spend their grant on music equipment.
