Celebrating Make Music Day

While we make music every day at WollCon, for June 21st we are celebrating ‘Make Music Day’ with a joyous concert of song.

Held annually on 21 June, Make Music Day is a daylong, world-wide celebration of music in all its forms, and encourages people (both amateur and professional players) to band together and play in free public concerts.

Presented in Australia by the Australian Music Association and the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Foundation, Make Music Day performances can take place anywhere, including churches, community centres, libraries, shopping centres and outdoor spaces.

WollCon’s Head of Voice along with Choir managers Kate Whitworth and Hayden Barrington have joined forces with their vocal ensembles to bring audiences a choir concert like never before and will have you singing along.

“As the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald said,  “The only thing better than singing is more singing”!  We are set to raise the roof on the St Francis Xavier Cathedral , so join us in celebrating Make Music Australia Day through song.”

Trish
