What is Make Music Danbury?
Make Music Danbury is a part of the international Make Music Day movement which brings free, community-wide, outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide! Every year, the celebration is held on June 21, the summer solstice, in more than 800 communities around the world.
Make Music Danbury will feature musicians of all abilities and music from any genre. Sidewalks, parks, front porches, and public spaces throughout the city will become stages for local musicians to perform and for all to enjoy. Everyone is invited to participate in this international day of music by performing, providing an outdoor space, appreciating, or volunteering. It’s all for the love of music!
Make Music Danbury is brought to you by the Danbury Cultural Commission as part of our mission to partner with individual artists and cultural groups to provide cultural and arts activities to enrich the lives of our community. We foster and encourage learning and performing opportunities for citizens of all ages, and assist in providing attendance opportunities at events resulting from these efforts, at little or no cost.
Make Music Day is also brought to you by the Danbury Chamber of Commerce and CityCenter Danbury and Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut.
How to Make Music on June 21st
So that everyone else on the planet can find you and your music,
you need to register.
Once there are musicians and venues you can reach-out to each other and make a match.
If, as a musician, you have your own location (like a Facebook Live broadcast) your registration as a musician is all you need to do.
Then on June 21st Play!
Make Music Danbury returns on June 21, 2020!
Ideas of what you can do to live stream music from Facebook Live:
- Sign up and sing a favorite tune from your living room.
- Sign up and play a drum from your front porch.
- Sign up and, from a single household, sing a song in harmony.
- Sign up and Zoom a few of you playing your favorite music together.
- Sign up and play your favorite instrument: Guitar, Piano, Violin, Zither, or Kazoo.
It is just about you making music
