MAKE MUSIC DAY 2022: THAT’S A WRAP!

Held annually on 21 June, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in a thousand cities and places across 120 countries. The daylong, musical free-for-all, celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts in many different locations and online.  Make Music Day is presented in Australia by the Australian Music Association and the NAMM Foundation.

Make Music Day Australia 2022 made a strong early impression with Australian music legend Kate Ceberano and Make Music Day Australia’s Rob Walker sitting on the ABC News Breakfast couch to talk up the day

As always TAFE NSW made a big contribution to the day with Students performing at Mortuary Station. Here’s a selection of performances.

Giving the day quite an exotic vibe was the Andalus Arabic Choir performing a selection of songs in Arabic.

Northern Beaches Council in NSW was also in the MMD spirit

As per last year Store DJ/Mannys Music nationally got into the spirit of the day with staff performing instore. Here’s a clip from the guys at Perth

Hunters and Collectors trumpet player Jack Howard is also a teacher at Wesley College in Melbourne and the Wesley College Jazz Ensemble contributed to Make Music Day with a wonderful jam.

Logan Chan sent us a fantastic classical piano performance, playing Rachmaninoff Etudes Tableaux Op 33, No 3 in C minor

Many of the performances above made it to the Global Livestream (see below) of which Australia contributed the first two hours. We then handed over to India before the livestream wound its way around the globe from Africa to the UK, Germany, and USA.

The above is just a fraction of the amount of performances from the day around Australia. For more info on Make Music Day, (which is June 21 every year!) visit
