On Tuesday, 21 June the City of Canada Bay will join hundreds of cities around the world in a global celebration of music.
Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
The day is a DIY music festival and anyone who wants to take part — young or old, amateur or professional, of every musical persuasion — can organise their own gig or work with the City of Canada Bay to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers.
“We are delighted to be taking part in Make Music Day for the fifth year in a row,” City of Canada Bay Deputy Mayor Stephanie Di Pasqua said.
“Councils play an important role in fostering a vibrant local live music community and Make Music Day is a great way to showcase the wonderful artists in our City.”
This year music lovers, makers and performers can get involved by:
- Registering to busk in the town centres of Concord, Five Dock or Rhodes.
- Recording themselves singing or playing an instrument for the chance to win a paid performance at the City of Canada Bay’s largest street festival, Ferragosto.
- Enjoying live community performances in Concord and Rhodes or a drumming workshop in Five Dock.
