Making Music virtual concerts

Join the Making Music team tomorrow at 7pm for their latest concert broadcast on their YouTube channel.

Making Music are celebrating the wonderful breadth and variety of music that their member groups perform by broadcasting it to the world.

Member groups have had to cancel rehearsals and performances due to COVID-19. However, in homes all over the country the leisure-time music scene is still thriving through people keeping in touch online socially or managing to find a way to rehearse and perform digitally.

The fortnightly virtual concerts will feature video and/or audio recordings of groups playing or singing, including an introduction to each group and piece.
