Engaging professional artists

Online member meetup (Northern Ireland)

For the past 18 months, leisure-time music groups have faced challenges at every turn such as dealing with strict Covid-19 measures and new rules resulting from Brexit, and keeping up with PRS licensing and consultations on new legislation such as Protect Duty. Regulatory changes have become a way of life, and often differ between the four nations of the UK.

Selected Artists Guide

The Selected Artists Guide is created by the Making Music Selected Artists Panel, and lists a selection of outstanding musicians available to Making Music members to book.

Working with your music director to deliver online activities

The brave new world of online rehearsal has taken off in a way we couldn’t have imagined just six months ago. While it can be great it isn’t always plain sailing and we know some groups have decided against online rehearsals, whilst others have had limited success.  

Groups that have been successful have told us their Musical Director or conductor (MD) has been central to this, and equally where groups have struggled it is often because their MD has not been able to offer support as much as they would like.

Livestreaming: tips from promoting groups

Two of our member promoting groups have tried out livestreaming for the very first time, with some of our Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist Award winners. We have collected what they learned below to help any other groups thinking about livestreaming a concert.
