Music stimulates a stimulating dynamism for the sociability of the citizens because the musical behavior comprises the biological, social and psychic factors. The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) offers one of the best concert halls in Rio de Janeiro (the Salão Leopoldo Miguez of the School of Music) where the "Happy Music" Extension event has been held uninterrupted since 1995. Considering that the space, the context and the conditions in which the music takes place are decisive for the observance of the objectives of this integrating initiative that involves and brings together students and teachers from UFRJ, external public (primary and secondary schools of public and private schools) and other interested parties. The participants of this initiative emanate from different age groups and target audiences, given its extension, interaction and socio-artistic integration component that encourages children, youth and adults to perform in public in a space where there is an intense dialogue between music and science as significantly beneficial to musicians, performers, educators as well as listeners and/or spectators. An intense bet on motivational activity for technical improvement, intrapersonal and interpersonal development, growth of artistic skills required for performance, emotional self-control as well as the expansion of cultural, musical and repertory knowledge. The musical works to be presented are of free choice without restriction regarding the musical style and the musical formations, in order to constitute an initiative, open to the other artistic representations. We observe that in the scope of this event, which is a barn of future professionals, many participants have achieved success in their artistic and academic careers of national or international dimension. We believe that our motivational strategy drives the academic community and the general public to perform in a concert hall, which for many participants is a unique opportunity.
