The Gunnedah Conservatorium partnered with Oak Tree Retirement Village to celebrate Make Music Day last Friday, June 21.

Each year on June 21, musicians and music fans around the world celebrate music making, wherever they are with whatever music they play.

Marg Amos, Dominic Goodwin-Hauck and Meg Clowes delighted the Oak Tree crowd with a long list of hits from the 50 and 60s.

Make Music Day started in 1982 by France’s Ministry of Culture which created a new kind of musical holiday they called Fête de la Musique, which means both “festival of music” and “make music”.

Today, Make Music Day has become an international phenomenon, with millions of musicians of all styles, all ages, and all skill levels reimagining their cities as stages, and using music to spread joy to their communities throughout the world.

Gunnedah Conservatorium also hosted a lunchtime performance at the Verdict Cafe to coincide with Make Music Day.

The community is also invited to test out the public keyboard on display at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery. The keyboard forms part of the gallery’s ‘Day for Everything’ exhibition.
