The Melbournaires seek to

  • perpetuate the barbershop style of music by sharing it, and our love for it, with people of all ages and diversity,
  • promote the education of its members and the public in music appreciation, and
  • participate in charitable projects and community outreach.

We support the cause of preserving vocal music, in our education systems and in our communities, as a lifelong recreational activity and as an essential element in one’s cultural well-being.

We extend our community outreach in performance for:


  • Community Festivals, e.g Surrey Hills and Boroondara
  • Anglicare Victoria and Salvation Army Appeals
  • Community Aid Abroad
  • Probus & View Clubs
  • Hospitals
  • Retirement, aged care and nursing homes
  • Housing For Humanity Fundraiser
