The idea for Tempo Rubato – a backstreet classical music venue – arose from a series of fundraising recitals run by Piano Project, a charity which sponsors piano lessons for children who are new immigrants to Australia (www.pianoproject.org.au). Last year we secured a warehouse shell in Brunswick and began the process of converting the old factory into a space suitable for acoustic music performance. We have completed all the rudimentary work ourselves. We now need funding to carry out the renovations that will enable us to open the doors.

Every community is enriched by its culture. At Tempo Rubato, local community members will experience classical music in an environment that is both unusual and accessible. In their own backyard, audiences will be able to enjoy intimate performances by local and international musicians. Proceeds from Tempo Rubato will be donated to Piano Project, creating a sustainable model to continue to fund piano lessons for immigrant children. Tempo Rubato will enrich Melbourne’s reputation as a city of music, with a unique offering that benefits local community, local musicians, and supports some of our most vulnerable children.
