Make Music Day is an annual event taking place on Sunday 21st June, consisting of free performances and music making events taking place in venues and public spaces around the world. It is Music in Hospitals & Care’s first year taking part and celebrations will be a little different this year. Make Music Day is moving online and there are plenty of ways to get involved. Here is what we are getting up to on the day:
Make your own kitchen orchestra – Download our activity sheet containing great ideas for making musical instruments from items in your kitchen. You could make them in advance ready for the day, or as a fun Father’s Day morning activity.
Make Music Day song sheet – Download our sing-a-long and play-a-long song sheets of four classic tunes including the two songs chosen by Make Music Day for this year: Bring Me Sunshine and Auld Lang Syne. Join in with Music in Hospitals & Care musicians Filkin’s Drift as they perform the songs at 3.30pm on our social media channels!
We also have a great programme of music throughout the day on our Facebook page, including performances from fantastic choirs from across the UK who support us with great fundraising activities.
10am – Start the day with music and movement in this session led by the team at danceSing
