Join us for the launch of our exhibition at the Barbican Music Library that celebrates leisure-time music making.
In communities all across the UK, friends, neighbours and colleagues meet up regularly to make music. From jazz to folk, pop to classical, barbershop to brass, thousands of groups gather together in halls, houses, garages, churches, fields and theatres for the joy of creating and performing with others.
Making Music Together celebrates the scale and breadth of this leisure-time music scene, and the positive impact taking part has on the hundreds of thousands of players and singers who get together week after week to make music.
The exhibition features quotes, posters and film contributed by Making Music member groups alongside a specially commissioned series of portraits of leisure-time musicians.
