Arts Centre Melbourne's acclaimed Morning Melodies started in 1985 when performer Betty Pounder and producer SAndy Graham decided it was time to make good use of the empty Playhouse on a Monday morning. They had a brainwave to break theatre tradition and invite people in during the day. More than thirty years on, Morning Melodies has presented more than 450 concerts and welcomed almost half a million audience members, making it a quintessential Melbourne experience.
