Sheffield Makes Music 2019


Sheffield city centre will be transformed into a stage for a series of exhilarating performances on BBC Music Day (26 September 2019).

Sheffield Makes Music is back for its 4th year of celebrating all that is brilliant about our city’s music makers and audiences and will be an official part of the BBC’s annual UK-wide programme of events celebrating the power of music to change lives.

Sheffield Makes Music will weave musical sounds through the city centre including Fargate, Orchard Square and Castlegate showcasing the brilliant musical creators, contributors and talent Sheffield has to offer through a range of acoustic, choral, electronic and pop performances.

Visitors to the city centre will experience amazing sounds in unexpected places - with performances by artists including Tixxy Bang, LIO, Opera on Location, Steve Edwards, Surf Muscle, Before Breakfast, Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and the Sheffield Makes Music Pop Up Orchestra.

Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers, will form a one-off ‘supergroup’ - including band member Ed Cosens and Kweku Sackey of K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade. This special Sheffield/Ghanian fusion performance will end the day at the Big Yellow Bus on Fargate at 6.30pm.

Sheffield Makes Music - which will run from 11am-7pm - has been organised by the University of Sheffield in partnership with BBC Music Day and supported by Sheffield BID, Sheffield City Council, Orchard Square, Yellow Arch Studios and The Leadmill.
