Professional and amateur musicians alike, community groups and music lovers are invited to take part in Make Music Day on 21 June.
Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is a day of community-led free musical expression now held annually in more than 800 cities in 120 countries.
Make Music Day seeks the involvement of government bodies, local councils, schools and community music organisations, music retailers and industry, and importantly, members of the community.
The event encourages both amateur and professional music making and empowers individuals to seek out ways to celebrate and express music in their community.
All of it is free and open to the public. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — gathers indoor and outdoor, in venues, streets, parks, plazas, paddocks and verandas to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers.
