Special online event!
For the very first time, the 9 Alliances Françaises of Canada (Moncton, Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria) have decided to join forces in order to present this event, Make Music, together.
We are aiming to unite and unify people from East to West (and even outside of Canada!) around the same event and to promote talents from all over Canada… With a 100% virtual festival!
A free music celebration!
Make Music Edmonton is a free family-friendly live music event that showcases the diverse talent that our city has to offer. During Make Music Event, the business fronts of 124 Street are transformed into sidewalk stages, showcasing Edmonton’s incredible cultural and artistic diversity in untraditional musical spaces. This event is made possible entirely through the efforts of musicians, volunteers and generous sponsorship of individuals, corporations and government. It showcases a multitude of amateur and established musicians, and celebrate music in all its diversity.
Make Music Edmonton is also joining the National Aboriginal Day festivities happening on the same day, by partnering with other associations and inviting aboriginal musicians to perform!
Make Music Edmonton was inspired by “La Fête de la Musique”, a national event launched in France in 1982 by French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, to celebrate musical culture. The event has since gone global, with “Make Music” taking place each year on June 21st (Summer Solstice), in over 700 cities worldwide. Make Music Edmonton was launched in 2014 by the Alliance Française of Edmonton.
