Mass Appeal, part of Make Music Day, brings together thousands of musicians across the country – of all levels and ages – to make music in large, single-instrument groups. Mass Appeal gatherings are a unique opportunity for players to meet up with others and jam!
A free beginner lesson will take place prior to each mass appeal event and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

Bucket Drums on The Green
Mini lesson: 3:30 pm
Mass appeal: Immediately follows until 4:30 pm
The Vic Firth Company is supporting our bucket drumming event. The first 25 participants – kids and adults, professionals and amateurs, will be handed a pair of Vic Firth sticks and invited to make music together. The goal is to spread the message that to make music, all you need is a beat in your heart… and a pair of sticks. Website: vicfirth.com
