This year, Make Music Middletown will be taking place in the comfort of your own home, porch or backyard! Due to COVID19 social distancing regulations, all musical events for the City of Middletown will be happening virtually!
Here is a message from the Make Music Alliance with the latest update on COVID19.
Held annually on June 21, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 1,000 cities across 120 countries. The daylong, musical free-for-all celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts. Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, and has spread to over 750 cities across 120 countries. Completely different from a typical musical festival, Make Music concerts are performed by anyone who wants to take part, and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend. From classical to folk, hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock, live music of all kinds resounds on streets, sidewalks, porches, plazas, parks, gardens, store fronts and other public spaces on the longest day of the year.
Please stay tuned for more information on how to sign up by visiting the Arts & Culture Facebook page. Any musician, amateur or professional, young or old, is invited to take part. Registration will open soon and will close on June 14, 2020.
Make Music Day is presented by the NAMM Foundation and coordinated by the nonprofit Make Music Alliance.
STAY TUNED! We’ll let you know when and where to sign up soon.
