History:

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. Eight years ago, the Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York.

Starting as a grassroots initiative by a team of volunteers, the event quickly became a critical and popular success. Today, over 6,000 New York musicians – amateurs and professionals, of all ages and musical persuasions – perform in more than 1,200 free, outdoor concerts each June 21st, earning praise for their “inspiring” (New York Times) and “thrilling” (New Yorker) performances.

In recent years, other cities across the continent have launched their own Make Music celebrations. On June 21, 2015, 22 North American cities organized 2,714 free concerts at 839 locations… all on a single day.

Make Music Day – Liberty (2016):

On Tuesday, June 21st Liberty will join hundreds of cities in the US and throughout the world as we mark the beginning of summer with Make Music Liberty, a citywide, celebration of music open to all ages, all genres of music, and all skill levels.  And, it’s all free.  Throughout the day, you may hear music being performed on a sidewalk, a residential porch, the steps of a church, a parking lot, in one of Liberty’s city parks or at a public place of business which has volunteered to be a host venue.

This is the inaugural year for Make Music Liberty and it takes community involvement to make it all happen – participation by musicians, businesses and public spaces to host performers, volunteers to keep things on track, and funding to advertise and promote the event. So PLEASE! Contact us, signup…HELP US MAKE THIS A GREAT DAY IN LIBERTY!

Make Music Liberty is sponsored by the City of Liberty through the Liberty Arts Commission and supported, in part, by the Liberty Arts Foundation based, 501(c)(3) not for profit organization supporting local arts).
