To celebrate Make Music Day by bringing together primary school children from all over Scotland as they connect via livestream to SIGN the same song, the Make Music Day Anthem, on the same day at the same time.
What is Make Music Day.
La Fete de la Musique, sometimes called Music day, World Music Day or Make Music day (as here in the UK), started in France, to celebrate music and culture. By the early 90's less than ten years after it's conception, it was celebrated in eighty-five countries across five continents and takes place annually on the same day worldwide - 21st June.
It became an international phenomenon - there was even a postage stamp dedicated to it in 1998! And in 2020, 125 countries around the world participated in the Make Music Day festival. Make Music Day first came to the UK in 2012 and has been growing year on year. It has been a UK co-ordinated initiative since 2017 with support and funding from a broad range f national organisations.
Last year we, The Frisson Foundation, celebrated Make Music Day during the first lockdown by premiering our very first virtual choir with children participating from all over Scotland. This year, 2021, we are inviting schools during these continued difficult times to promote Make Music Day, promote inclusive communication and be part of our Make Music day Signing Challenge - 'Sign at the Gate'. In fact you can sign any anywhere. Just be part of something special.
