About Make Music Day
Make Music Day, an annual global celebration of music on the summer solstice, returns this year on Thursday, June 21 with more than 4,500 free outdoor concerts, music lessons, jam sessions and other exciting music-making events being held in over 70 U.S. cities in 31 states. New York City to Los Angeles, Austin to Chicago, Nashville to Minneapolis-St. Paul and yes, Eden Prairie MN are among the numerous cities hosting celebrations – as well as the entire states of Vermont and Connecticut – in what has become a worldwide phenomenon observed by hundreds of millions of people in 800 cities in 120 countries.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of age or ability. Reimagining their cities and towns as stages, every kind of musician – from bucket drummers and opera singers to rock music artists and marching bands – pours onto streets, parks, plazas, porches, rooftops, gardens and other public spaces to celebrate, create and share their music with friends, neighbors and strangers.
Launched in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is presented in the U.S. by The NAMM Foundation and coordinated by the nonprofit Make Music Alliance.
All Make Music Day events are free and open to the public.
