The National Federation of Music Societies
Making Music represents and supports amateur and semi-professional music groups of all genres throughout the United Kingdom.
They provide a comprehensive range of artistic and administrative services and development and training opportunities. Making Music also lobbies on behalf of our members to national and local government and other agencies.
With over 2,800 member groups, we represent over 200,000 musicians and music lovers throughout the UK. Collectively, they present around 10,000 concerts each year to an audience of 1.6 million people. They spend £13 million per year on professional artist and £1 million with music publishers, as well as employing composers, venues, designers, staging suppliers and instrument manufacturers. Making Music's proudest claim is that in many communities a Making Music concert is the only form of live music.
