Celebrating leisure-time music in the UK, this exhibition features quotes, posters and film from Making Music member groups and a specially commissioned series of portraits of leisure-time musicians.
In communities all across the UK, friends, neighbours and colleagues meet up regularly to make music. From jazz to folk, pop to classical, barbershop to brass, thousands of groups gather together in halls, houses, garages, churches, fields and theatres for the joy of creating and performing with others.
Making Music Together celebrates the scale and breadth of this leisure-time music scene, and the positive impact taking part has on the hundreds of thousands of players and singers who get together week after week to make music.
