Make Music Day is June 21, 2018

If you like Porchfest, then you’re going to love Make Music Day. Each year, this phenomenon takes the world by storm, by bringing a free celebration of music to the people. The event was started in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, and today it resounds from community to community. This is the day that musicians take to the streets, to the taverns, to the buses, to the porches… wherever music can be played.

It’s all for the love of music!

For the third year in a row, Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASIWNY) will be orchestrating Make Music Day in Buffalo. There will be concerts, pop-up performances, music workshops for children, and play-alongs. There will be something for everyone to enjoy. Most importantly, the city will come together, one musician at a time, to embrace our collective love of music. This is a day when we share our thoughts and our dreams, as they roll out of our heads, in the form of beats and songs. It’s something that you’re not want to miss. It’s a movement that you’re going to want to be a part of.
