How to Make Music on June 21st

Registration is now open.

Using our matchmaking software venues and musicians can register, create profiles and find a match for their Make Music Southeastern CT performance. 

Details:

  • DEADLINE to register and make a match: May 21, 2018
  • Musicians and venues participating must obtain their own permits with their town/city
  • All matches made through the matchmaking software will appear on the Make Music Southeastern CT promotions later this spring 

Setting up your own event is easy. Here’s how. 

Register online through May 21 using the Make Music matchmaking program and create a brief profile.

If you have a location already, great! If you have confirmed performers already, great! Enter your information to show up in the listings. 

Don’t have a location or looking for performers? That’s okay, you can find one using the Make Music “match-making” platform by following the instructions below.

Helpful Note: This platform works like a dating website, it is up to you to reach out and set up the details of your performance “date.”  Making a request increases your chances of a performance.
