Make Music State of the Week: Alabama

Make Music Day

For the first time ever, five Alabama cities – Decatur, Florence, Gadsden, Gulf Shores, and Huntsville – are joining Make Music Day this year!

Lots of Make Music Alabama events are geared towards children, from a found object guitar building workshop in Gadsden, to youth percussion classes in Decatur. But like any Make Music Day, there is truly something for everyone. Huntsville will feature a 10-piece jazz band at their library, and Gulf Shores will give away egg shakers and tambourines in Meyer Park, for the public to use to accompany Grammy-nominated songwriter Rhonda Hart and Smokey Otis.

We welcome Alabama into the Make Music community, and thank the Alabama Arts Alliance for helping coordinate the state!
