New Video Discovers the Lasting Effects of Music-Making

This year, more than ever, we have witnessed how the power of music can bring us together as a community. We've seen people finding new and inspiring ways to remain connected to one another, even whilst physically separated. Videos from all across the world appeared, showing communities of neighbors - between apartment blocks, along streets, across balconies - coming together in solidarity to make music. Music frees the soul. It allows you to express yourself in ways that are unimaginable. It makes people feel more connected and it creates memories that will last for a lifetime. It doesn’t matter what you believe in or what you stand for, music is for everyone.

Our newest film delightfully demonstrates the lasting impact music, and particularly music made in the great outdoors has on us as well as the instant joy it brings. No matter who you are or where you come from, music has the power to automatically bring people together.

As we collectively look forward to life returning to normal in 2021, we invite you to sit back, watch and enjoy our short movie showcasing the power of music as well as the durability, beauty, and multi-generational appeal of our outdoor musical instruments.
