Make Music Day

For the last ten years Aaron Freeman has run an event called "Make Music New York." It's a single day with over 1,200 free concerts -- from New York Philharmonic players to teenage garage bands, Beijing opera companies to senior center choirs -- on streets, sidewalks, parks, and bridges throughout NYC, all on June 21.  In recent years, 35 other cities around the country have signed on to create their own "Make Music" celebrations, each with hundreds of free outdoor concerts on June 21. 

Make Music 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.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
