What is Make Music Day? Make Music Day is a celebration of music that takes place on June 21, the summer solstice.
The event is Global, free and open to everyone. This year is the 40th anniversary of fête de la musique. The “festival of music” is no ordinary festival. Created in France in 1982, it has been taken up globally making this the largest Music Festival in the world.
Music groups and communities in cities worldwide host events that feature a variety of types of music. For example, a concert of brass bands in the Netherlands, a silent discotheque in the UK, and a tango dance in Argentina. More than just a holiday, Make Music Day is a chance to get out and hear a wide range of musical performances in new and exciting ways.
Make Music Middletown is our part of this global event.
This day is an opportunity for the community to share their love of music and to help create a more vibrant downtown
