What is Make Music Southeastern CT?
Make Music Southeastern CT is a part of the international Make Music Day movement which brings free, community-wide, outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide! Every year, the celebration is held on June 21, the summer solstice, in more than 800 communities around the world.
Make Music Southeastern CT will feature musicians of all abilities and music from any genre. Sidewalks, parks, front porches, and public spaces throughout the region will become stages for local musicians to perform and for all to enjoy. Everyone is invited to participate in this international day of music by performing, providing an outdoor space, appreciating, or volunteering.
All are welcome to participate- no experience necessary! Join a diverse community of musicians and help fill every town and city in Southeastern CT with music.
You can register in our scheduling system, browse artists and request performances. (deadline to register as a performer or venue is June 1.)
Make Music Southeastern CT is brought to you by the Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition as part of our mission to contribute to the cultural identity, economy and quality of life of Southeastern Connecticut by advocating and supporting arts, heritage, cultural and business activities and organizations.
Make Music Day Connecticut is being administered in partnership with the Connecticut Office of the Arts and many local and regional partners across the state.
Make Music Southeastern CT is modeled after a Parisian tradition (Fête de la Musique) that began in 1982 as a tribute to the Summer Solstice. More specifically, each June 21st Paris is filled with musicians of all kinds performing on sidewalks, lawns, balconies, in parks, etc. for anyone to enjoy at no cost. In 2007, Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York. Ever since, cities around the world have been starting their own Make Music days.
Join us for the second annual Make Music Southeastern CT on Friday, June 21, 2019!!
