What’s on Events Make Music Day UK Join Severn Arts in the worldwide celebration of music on Sunday 21 June 2020. Make Music Day UK is a free celebration of music around the world. The event launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique and is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries on the summer solstice. On 21 June every year thousands of events take place across the globe in what becomes the world’s largest DIY music festival. At this time, music is particularly important so even if physical gatherings can't happen, the plan for Make Music Day UK 2020 is to still connect online and celebrate music together. How can I take part in Make Music Day with Severn Arts? We want to share as many videos as we can on our social media channels of Worcestershire people making music. If you would like to take part please send in a video of your piece of music on the theme of #MusicAtHome to [email protected] – everyone is invited to take part – students, parents, carers, family groups, teachers! About your video Please make your video with your phone held sideways/landscape Feel free to use backgrounds other than people if you would prefer to be anonymous Keep your video to a maximum of 90 seconds Don't forget to tell us your name and the title of your video when you email it to us Unfortunately MP3, WAV or PCM files can't be uploaded to YouTube. When do I need to send you my video? The deadline for entries is Friday 12 June 2020. What will you do with my video? By sending us your video you are agreeing to Severn Arts sharing your video/photograph on Severn Arts YouTube channel, website and social media. We will upload the videos we receive to our YouTube channel and show them through our Facebook and Twitter accounts throughout the day on Sunday 21 June. All participants will receive a certificate. Fancy an extra challenge? Making music brings joy and grows confidence. We want every child to have that opportunity. That is why we’ve developed our bursary – to reduce costs for children who, because of their circumstances, might otherwise miss out. “I have come so far in the past two years, and I couldn’t have done it without the help from Severn Arts ” For any of you wishing to use your music video to fundraise for our bursary you could add in a challenge. Here are some fun ideas you could try: Playing parts from as many different pieces as you can in 90 seconds Including song requests from family and friends in your video Involving all members of your household in creatively accompanying your performance! This extra challenge is a completely voluntary optional extra. If you do want to fundraise for us and help more children have as much fun making music as you do, you can set up your fundraising page using the blue fundraising button on the right.
