Make Music City of the Week: Pittsburgh

Make Music Day

Percussionists playing on the street in Pittsburgh PAIn 2015, when Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto announced his support for street performing without a permit, local resident Jasmine Kurjakovic seized the moment to launch the city’s first Make Music Day.

Since then, whether it has been hip-hop in Lawrenceville, gospel in Highland Park, bluegrass in Squirrel Hill, classical in the Hill District, or kids rocking out on buckets at The Children’s Museum, Make Music Pittsburgh has offered music in its purest form with a Pittsburgh flare.

This June 21, Make Music Pittsburgh will be hosting an all-day livestream event on their Facebook page. Community hosts will livestream music from their favorite artists throughout the day, and lead segments that include music-related panel discussions, a virtual open mic, and instrument building workshops.
