Make Music Day is an annual, international celebration of music held every year on 21 June, now in 125 countries and over 1,000 cities. It is made by everyone for everyone, and there are many ways to get involved – in the UK, with European projects, and in the global plans.
This year, all over the world, Make Music Day went digital, which gave even more chances for people to get involved and Perform, Create and Watch.
At Making Music we love Make Music Day as a great opportunity to celebrate our member groups and all their members, showcasing the musical talent in communities across the UK and encouraging new people to have a go.
That’s why this year we created a digital project for all members of any Making Music groups to be part of - a Virtual Choir & Ensemble. We commissioned a special arrangement of the Make Music Day anthem 'Bring Me Sunshine' which enabled everyone to join in – voice or instrument, improvised percussion, beginner or advanced, music reader or not. The finished video was broadcast on 21 June on the official Make Music Day UK channel, and you can watch it again below.
