Every day, all day Thursday 10 September to Thursday 31 December

Sydney Living Museums is delighted to launch an exciting new online program, House Music at Your House, inspired by the sheet music collection at Rouse Hill Estate.

We’ve delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate in Sydney's north-west to bring you the top 20 hits of the 1840s and 50s – songs played across NSW, Australia and overseas.

Every week until December visit the Sydney Living Museums website, to view a new musical score of a song enjoyed by the Rouse family and their friends, along with a video, a sound file or guitar chords. We’ve also asked a group of Sydney’s leading musicians to share their interpretations of these popular hits from their homes.

We invite you to make music with us bringing the music of the 19th century into the 21st century. Recreate these songs for the 2020s and make your own cover version of each week’s song, turning music from 19th-century Rouse Hill House into music at your house in the 21st century. 

Share your version with us, and we’ll share the best responses across our website and social media. Visit our website to find out how you can participate.

House Music at Your House is supported by the City of Sydney.
