World Music Concert: African Music and Dance and World Music Choir

In light of the emerging COVID-19 situation the University is adopting a series of changes to reduce rates of infection in the community. The health and wellbeing of our community is of paramount importance. Therefore, all University events have been postponed or cancelled.

The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music’s performances are an important part of our students’ learning and, in many cases, part of their curriculum and assessment. We are working to find alternative modes of delivery, such as live-streaming and recording. Our popular Lunch Hour concerts at Melba Hall, to give just one example, will continue to stream weekly whenever possible.

More information on those arrangements will be available soon. In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your understanding and support in these challenging times and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events when possible.


Each semester, students from across the University of Melbourne learn to perform traditional and popular music from around the world. This evening, Dr Joseph Jordania leads a choir of several hundred students in singing traditional and contemporary songs from China, Africa, Europe and the Americas. Chris Lesser then leads the African Music and Dance Ensemble in performing traditional music from West Africa.
