Make Music Day

Make Music Day is an annual set of free music events taking place in venues and public spaces around the UK - from town squares to libraries, bandstands to school halls and arts centres – on the longest day of the year, Thursday 21 June.

This year, NYMAZ is working with Make Music Day to take music to the countryside –  we are encouraging music groups and individuals to take their music to the hills, mountains and beaches. We are challenging participants to find the remotest spot and live-stream their event through Facebook!

Make Music Day UK is also attempting to connect each performance through a unified piece, the song chosen is the Morecambe and Wise classic Bring Me Sunshine. Last year the song of the day was performed by vocal and instrumental groups in town squares, shopping centres, parks, pubs and buses. This year, we want your weird and wonderful versions of the summer classic in all sorts of surprising places - as remote as you can get!

We will be putting together guidance to help participants to live stream their performances – watch this space.

If you are interested in getting involved we would love to hear from you - please contact grace@nymaz.org.uk and also sign up at: http://makemusicday.co.uk/.
