The Robert Stolz Viennese Music Society Inc was established in Melbourne, Australia, in 1984 at the instigation of Robert Stolz's widow Einzi and two local music enthusiasts, Mrs Hedy Holt and Mr Roger Prochazka. The Society was officially registered and incorporated as a non-profit organisation in September 1985. The original name, "The Australian Robert Stolz Society Inc", was changed to the current name in 2005. 


The Society aims to promote Robert Stolz' music, and lighthearted Viennese and classical music generally in a relaxed and happy atmosphere.


The Society is a sponsor of numerous music organisations in Melbourne. It is also helping talented young Australian singers and instrumentalists with scholarships and concert opportunities to establish and further their musical careers.

The Latest

President Ian's Annual report on the year 2020

 Preparations for 2020 began well with plans for ‘A Sunday Afternoon in Vienna’, a combined concert with the ‘Wesley of Warragul’ music organization, well in hand. The venue was to the renovated former Methodist Church. Artists included Lee Abrahmsen, soprano and Roy Best, tenor.

Unfortunately it had to be cancelled due to the Covid 19 lockdown as were all the other concerts planned for 2020.

It’s been a difficult year for many of our members and the committee hopes that we will once again be able to bring you the delightful music of Vienna to lift your spirits.

Ian Lowe – President.
