Grand Central Chorus will be holding an open rehearsal on the Summer Solstice, Wednesday 21st June, as their contribution to ‘Make Music Day UK’. Come along to our usual rehearsal venue to see and hear us in action, and perhaps join in and have a go?
Make Music Day UK is an annual UK wide, free day of music held in public spaces, from squares to libraries, bandstands to school halls and arts centres, held on the summer solstice, 21 June. This is the UK’s contribution to the international summer solstice music celebration which first started in France in 1982 and now takes place in over 120 countries and 750 cities across the world. Make Music Day UK aims to turn the country into a stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
Make Music Day UK is a way for everybody in the UK to celebrate the summer solstice, enjoying the longest day of the year, while sampling a range of the fantastic music-making which goes on all year round.
Make Music Day UK is open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical persuasions and will take place on the summer solstice, Wednesday 21 June 2017, in different spaces and places all over the UK.
