Flowerpot Music Returns

Music on June 21 can come from anyone, anywhere, and just about anything.

As if to prove the point, celebrated composer Elliot Cole and percussionist Peter Ferry are again organizing a series of music especially for Make Music Day, featuring an unlikely but beautiful percussion instrument – the flowerpot!

Last Make Music Day, forty-five groups around the world learned and perform Flowerpot Music. This year, parks, fields, and plazas will once again ring out with these easy-to-learn musical games. Anyone can join the events and make a great sound on a flowerpot – no experience required.
