Let’s make music for BBC Music Day!
Share your musical talents, 12–15 June
To celebrate BBC Music Day on 15 June, share your musical talents with colleagues. Last year you helped us create the first ever University music collection, a collaborative album of solo artists, bands, orchestras, choirs and music-related research.
This year we’d love for you to share your music on Twitter by tagging in @sheffunistaff #SheffieldMakesMusic #BBCMusicDay. If you’re not on Twitter, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll tweet on your behalf.
We're looking for your photos, videos, links to audio clips and any musical abilities, research and experiences you'd like to share.
Sheffield Makes Music, 9–11 June
This weekend (9-11 June) we’re helping Sheffield to come alive with the sound of music for the return of Sheffield Makes Music.
This is a celebration of local and established talent in collaboration with BBC Music Day and supported by Sheffield BID.
1,000 musicians will be performing at various locations around the city in established venues and unexpected spaces to create magical moments.
Most events take place on Friday 9 June with highlights including the University’s Indian Music Ensemble performing a Raga for commuters at Sheffield Train Station at 8am.
Last year we produced a report which outlined Sheffield’s booming music sector and how the city is well-positioned to be the UK's leading music city.
Professor Vanessa Toulmin, Director of City and Cultural Engagement, said: “Sheffield is a great music city – from the musicians to the bookers and promoters to the audiences. This weekend showcases our musical talent, our wonderful city, and our international venues celebrating the city and music together.”
