Make Music Day was founded on the notion that music has the power to bring people together. In times joy and hardship, both active and passive participation in music is healing. As society slowly returns to a (new) normal, we wanted to take the opportunity bring our community together to heal.

By following municipal, state, and federal guidelines on safety, we are planning a hybrid selection of in-person and virtual activities because trust us, we want to get out and play just as much as you do, but we want to keep everyone safe. All the more reason to come back strong in 2022!

How Can You Participate?

Watch this space as we announce programs and opportunities over the next several weeks.
