Aiming to foster community connection and wellbeing by offering free opportunities for locals, young, old, and everything in between, to engage in music, Make Music Month also allows residents to support local artists and learn about the cultural venues in Moreton Bay (their programs, experiences, and resources available).

A City of Moreton Bay council spokesperson said Make Music Month was created after Council spent two years doing various consultation processes, learning locals wanted to enjoy locals, asking for more opportunities to enjoy free, live music from resident artists.

“Supporting the creative sector helps make City of Moreton Bay a vibrant place to live, work and play,” they said.

“Make Music Month helps to strengthen the profi le of local musicians, providing performance opportunities... from rock to RnB, classical to country, traditional folk to indie pop, it’s a musical buff et for every taste.”

Make Music Month also includes International Make Music Day, which is celebrated around the world on June 21.

On that day, there will be six different jam sessions − from ukuleles to kazoos to jazz and rap − around the city. “Music connects people.

Whether you’re listening to a funky live set or having fun by joining in a jam session on ukulele, music will lift your mood,” the spokesperson said. A full list of performances can be found at
