Make Music State of the Week: New Mexico

Make Music Day

Just before his retirement last year, Senator Tom Udall learned about Make Music Day and decided it was high time that New Mexico joined the party.

Thanks to outreach from his office, word began to spread and Make Music Las Cruces launched in 2020. This year, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Gallup are all starting new Make Music celebrations – not to mention neighboring El Paso TX – putting over half of the state’s population within the Make Music Day footprint.

Musicians from this ancient and enchanting state will be featured in many Make Music Day projects this year – stay tuned!
