Middlesbrough to Celebrate International Make Music Day

By Published June 10, 2022

Thousands of free online and in-person events will take place up and down the country on Tuesday, June 21 to mark this year’s Make Music Day – the world’s largest, annual celebration of music.

As part of the celebrations, Middlesbrough-based musical inclusion programme MUSINC will be providing free events in the town as well as sharing specially recorded performances to mark the day.

MUSINC Inclusion Manager Rebecca Johnson said: “It’s really exciting to be part of an international celebration of making music.

“At MUSINC, we believe that getting involved in making music has the power to transform lives for people of all ages, so we are looking forward to this day to be able to share the wide variety of music making opportunities we have on offer here in Middlesbrough.”

Local primary schools will be attending a picnic in Centre Square which will include singing and body percussion workshops run by Stockton’s Apollo Creative Studios.

At lunchtime, secondary schools can also join in the fun and enjoy an electrifying performance by Leeds’s Back Chat Brass.

The brass band will also be doing a pop-up performance for the public in Pallister Park at 3.30pm – promising to coax ‘even the stubbornest of dance-phobics from their seats’ with their brassy beats rooted in pop, funk and hip-hop.

MUSINC will be hosting a Careers Panel with a Q&A at Middlesbrough Town Hall for secondary and sixth form students.

The panel of professionals will reflect a huge variety of professions, highlighting what young people can achieve in the Tees Valley region.

As the UK’s biggest single-day music festival, Make Music Day encourages musicians, producers, promoters and music lovers to collaborate and organise performances in their communities.

MUSINC will also be sharing an exciting performance by talented young people from their weekly music group Bandjam who have co-written a brand new song with Newcastle organisation Skimstone Arts and their band Reality Boots.
