Make Music Day 2015
Join the worldwide celebration of music on June 21!
Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
If you want to play — or to host a performance — follow these easy steps.
1. Check to see if your hometown is already a Make Music city. If so, you’re in luck! Follow the link to their site and get the full details on how to participate.
2. If your city isn’t on board yet, download the Event Kit with tips for setting up and promoting a Make Music event where you live. You can create a concert almost anywhere – storefronts, porches, garages, gardens, parks, or the sidewalk outside your home or business are all options. Then register your event with us and we’ll put it on the schedule.
3. Or come to one of the 100+ Mass Appeal events around the country, where you can just bring your instrument and join in!
4. If you are interested in organizing a larger-scale Make Music celebration in your city, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And here's a song ... I'm an early bird, so I can't relate to the lyrics of half the songs I like:
