Melbourne Recital Centre
It was opened in 2009, as part of the Melbourne Recital Centre and Melbourne Theatre Company Southbank Theatre complex designed by Ashton Raggat McDougall, and is located on the corner of Southbank Boulevard and Sturt Street in the Melbourne Arts Precinct, Southbank. It is Melbourne's second largest auditorium for classical music after the close by Hamer Hall.
The centre features two auditoria, the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, and a smaller Salon. The former, a 'modified shoe box' shaped music venue, is named after Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.
The stage, with the option to be extended is designed to accommodate up to 45–65 musicians, making it well suited to chamber music and other small ensemble music.
