Make Music day - June 21

Make Music Day is an annual celebration of music that takes place on the summer solstice. On Make Music Day everyone is invited to take part: performing music for others, listening to music, joining in playing music and/or hosting musical performances.

Beginning in France (1982) as the Fête de la Musique, this free music festival is now held on June 21 in more than 800 cities in 120 countries around the world. Some cities have begun the tradition of sponsoring a parallel event on December 21 MAKE MUSIC WINTERLearn more at the Make Music Day U.S. heqdquarters site.

In any form! 

Any form where people are making and enjoying music is welcomed. This could include free lessons, a drum circle, guitar or ukulele circle, electronic music exploration, harmonica band... the only limits are our own imagination.

How it works: those interested in participating sign up with their local chapter of Make Music Day. Organizers will be in touch with each one. Performers are matched with venues at a time to which both parties agree, and volunteers are mobilized to make the day a fun and memorable experience of making music!
