As well as celebrating the annual Make Music Day (21 June 2020), Sennheiser celebrates a unique musical story – marking 75 years since the company’s foundation in 1945. Today, and through its history, Sennheiser has been proud to support artists in the creation and sharing of music.
“Whether you’re a singer songwriter recording your first track, a superstar who’s filling stadiums or a DJ mixing up a storm, audio equipment has always been about making it easier to express oneself through music,” said Pierre Morant, Head of Relationship Management, Sennheiser. “However, more important than the instruments or the equipment is the passion for making, listening and sharing music that is at the start of every musical journey which ‘Make Music Day’ celebrates. During these two weeks we are really excited to play a part in keeping the music alive with performances from some great talent as part of our #DontStopTheMusic initiative.”
As part of its 75th anniversary – and throughout the coronavirus shutdown – Sennheiser’s #DontStopTheMusic has been keeping live music going strong. The exclusive, free, live-streamed concerts have seen artists from around the globe performing to audiences at home. This week and next, Sennheiser will present concerts by Hudson Thames on June 17, Aedan on June 19, Nic Hanson on June 22, Callaghan on June 24 and Solardo on June 26. Sennheiser’s #DontStopTheMusic series are streamed on Facebook.
Make Music Day is all about getting involved – whether you are spectating and listening online or making music with your family or a friend. Some cities are also organising small events that respect smart distancing and other coronavirus restrictions. If your city has a Make Music or a Fête de la Musique organisation, check out their website and see how you can celebrate your very own Make Music Day.
