Make Music State of the Week: Connecticut

Make Music Day

This year on Make Music Day, the Nutmeg State stands alone.

Thanks to support from the Connecticut Office of the Arts, eighteen chapters have formed to organize Make Music Connecticut, the most of any state!

Well over 500 free musical events are planned, including 20 participatory activities in Hartford ranging from a hip hop lyric workshop to a gathering of upright basses; an impromptu street piano performance by Jon Batiste in Ridgefield; a morning drum circle in New Haven; over 100 performances in Southeastern Connecticut and another 50+ in Waterbury; a Street Studio in Stamford Downtown; and inaugural Make Music Day programs in Danbury, East Granby, Greenwich, Hebron, Norwalk, and Woodbury (who made a wonderful video trailer).
