Make Music


Make Music Somerville is an annual free, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.


Thank you for your interest in Make Music Somerville!

This program is made possible, in part, by funds from the New Jersey State Council  on the Arts/Department of State and administered by the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission through the State/County Partnership Local Arts Program Grant.


2017 was our first year! There were seven concerts throughout the day at local businesses, churches, the public library and the Borough Hall lawn. Thanks to everyone who participated, including The Long Hill String Band, Somerville Ukulele Experience, Second Story Band, The Old Man Band, Nostalgia, Paul Anthony, and Karen Hardy.
