A little more about the event…

We are inviting interested Patrons to a free information session in the Primrose Potter Salon, to learn more about the Encore Bequest Circle and the option of leaving a gift in your will.

Hosted by Jim & Libby Cousins, valued supporters and Encore Bequest Circle Inaugural Patrons, this event boasts special guests Alex King and Nancy Collins from King & Collins Lawyers presenting on the ins-and-outs of leaving a gift in your will.

We will also be treated to performances by the wonderful pianist Louisa Breen, and talented 17-year-old violinist Leanne McGowen, an Encouragement Award Winner at the Melbourne Recital Centre Bach Competition this year and current student at ANAM.

Are you interested, but cannot make it to this event?

Please register your interest in these events with us, and we will ensure you are kept up to date with next year’s Encore Bequest Circle event series.

If you have already left the Centre a gift in your will, we would be delighted to welcome you to the Encore Bequest Circle. Please let us know. This information helps us to plan confidently for the future.

The Encore Bequest Circle event series

The Centre launched a series of events this year, celebrating the visionary support of our Encore Bequest Circle members and raising awareness about one of the best ways to support the long-term sustainability of our diverse and vibrant music programming.

Each event is providing relevant information about Melbourne Recital Centre’s bequest program and introducing special guests to share their insights and stories of music and philanthropy for those considering giving to the Centre in their wills.

Please get in touch with Leonie Thompson directly by phone (03) 9207 2648 or email with your RSVP, for any questions, or to register your interest in next year’s Encore Bequest Circle event series!
