Mass Appeal, part of Make Music Day, brings together thousands of musicians - of all levels and ages - to make music in large, single-instrument groups. The following free events, open to all, will take place on June 21, 2019.
Children and adults will be given the chance to make music together using the innovative brightly colored pBuzz – a brass-like instrument that’s easy for young children to play - even if they have never played a musical instrument. The session, ‘I Feel Good About Music’ is being directed by ulian Champion of the West Point School of Music and children of all ages are invited to participate.
