Make Music Chattanooga Opens Call to Musicians and Venues

For Second Annual International Make Music Day

A City-Wide Celebration of Local Music on Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

 

Registration is now open to all Chattanooga musicians, businesses and organizations interested in being a part of Make Music Day Chattanooga, a celebration of local music and musicians,  happening on the Summer Solstice – Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Interested performers looking for venues, and traditional and nontraditional venues looking for performers can register using the quick and easy form via matchcha.makemusicday.org. Returning performers and venues can easily renew and edit their existing profiles. Additional information is available at makemusicday.org/chattanooga or by emailing chattanooga@makemusicday.org.

In 2016 Chattanooga joined over 700 cities from around the globe participating in the international Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day, with the first ever Make Music Chattanooga Day presenting over 70 free outdoor concerts and music making events throughout the city.

Plans are in the works to build on the success of last year by presenting even better and more diverse live music experiences in 2017.  Organizers with Make Music Chattanooga would like to continue the momentum and accomplish this year’s goals, including:

  • More opportunities for young music makers by adding more workshops and having a more centralized area for children’s activities.
  • Make Music After Dark for any acts whose music would be better suited for a mature audience, also will feature a rap battle.
  • Bringing the Music to You, performances in nontraditional venues, such as hospitals and nursing homes for people who would not have the opportunity to attend our events.
