Talented urged for ‘Make Music’ event

LOCAL musicians are invited to celebrate the gift of music and perform as part of Make Music Day at Sydney Olympic Park.

It will feature amateur performances and a curated program featuring some of the best emerging local talent, and it’s all free to enjoy.
Completely different from a typical music festival, it is open to every kind of musician – young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion – who wants to take part, with applications now open.
Jacaranda Square will come alive from 9am to 7pm with a diverse mix of musical talent, including professional acts from Western Sydney’s thriving contemporary music scene, and an open mic available for anyone keen for their five minutes of fame.
Local cafes and restaurants in the park will get in on the act, providing a stage for musicians to showcase their talent.
Train commuters will also be treated to live music as they travel between Sydney Olympic Park and Lidcombe, with musicians providing the soundtrack for their journey from 7.30-9.30am, and again from 3.30-5.30pm.
Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 800 cities in 120 countries.
