Window Serenades

This Make Music Day, musicians around the country are organizing to share live music with our most isolated neighbors.

Selected nursing homes, and other facilities for vulnerable populations who are unable to leave their homes, are working with local Make Music chapters to invite solo musicians to serenade residents from outside their windows, while practicing social distancing. Residents may tape a piece of brightly colored paper to their window to request a song.

More details from participating cities will be coming soon! If you’re interested in bringing this project to your community, email
