Make Music Country of the Week: China

Make Music Day

Make Music China started in 2016, as a pilot project of the China Musical Instrument Association (CMIA).

Its growth ever since has been remarkable. Last year, 160,000 performers took part in 3,000 Make Music Day events across the country, with highlights including traditional Chinese music at Beijing’s Park of Temple of Heaven, 30 events in Huang Qiao Town (the epicenter of Chinese violin making), and a government-issued Make Music China postage stamp.

Over 4,000 events will take place in 160 cities for Make Music China in 2019. For the first time, they will be accompanied by a Make Music Day mascot named Wukong (see post below).

Congratulations to the CMIA for bringing music to millions on June 21!
