Make Music


Make Music Day is an international event where musicians of all types, skill sets, and ages to come together with venues for FREE and open-air celebrations of music. This day is less about good or bad and more about experience and community. 

Make Music Day happens on  the summer solstice every year, June 21st. This year, the event falls on a Friday!!  Let’s pack as much music as we can into the longest day of the year!

Make Music NWCT is proudly presented by the NWCT Arts Council.

2019 is the second year that Northwest CT is participating.  This year we are excited to build on the success of last year’s event and bring even more music to the public.  This year’s theme is Community Enrichment. Performers are encouraged to book at least one community-service oriented performance, such as at a school or retirement home, to bring music to those who might not otherwise have access.  

Who can participate in Make Music Day?

  • Anyone is welcome to participate! Whether you are a seasoned professional or you’ve never performed in public before, this day is for you.

The more people who participate the more magical the day will be, so be sure to share this with music lovers far and wide!
