MM Winter Spotlights: Big Plans

Make Music Day

Salem, Oregon

In organizing Make Music Winter for the second time, Make Music Salem has been thoughtful about including people of all ages.

On December 21, in the late afternoon, they will host a parade for families and kids that will burst with sound as participants sing and play bells of all types: hand bells, wind chimes, cowbells, and more.

Later on that day, the solstice celebration will continue at a pub crawl for Salemites aged 21+, with musicians performing at various downtown restaurants and bars.

Montclair, NJ

Montclair‘s third Make Music Winter not only brings music to the streets, but also highlights the community’s fantastic new public art.

The celebration will start in the early afternoon with a winter solstice parade through the Montclair Mural Project. The parade will make stops for musical selections at five murals along their route.

After adding new musicians along the way, the event will end at Cool Cat Music for a free indoor concert.
