Make Music Englewood is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year, with concerts on green spaces throughout Englewood.
RAIN MAKE UP EVENT!!!
Thanks for coming to the events we were able to present on June 21st despite the rain.
Since we were not able to put on a show at Englewood library, we are offering a make up event for all of you in Englewood and the surrounding area:
Make Music Englewood presents an “unplugged” evening of Bergen County songwriters at the Englewood Library lawn this Friday, June 24th at 7 PM. Local songwriters Melissa Cherie, Amanda Brite and Dan Sheehan (plus special guests including Sabrina Reye and more to be announced) present their songs (and possibly some covers) spanning a variety of genres to help you usher in the first weekend of Summer ’22
Make Music Englewood is a part of the international Make Music Day movement which brings free, community-wide, 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 Day events are organized with, for, and by the community. We are inclusive to all kinds of performers and audience members. Events can happen in expected and unexpected places across the region, from sidewalks to community gardens, public parks to your front porch. Performers can live stream their concert live in-person (fingers crossed!) or virtually from home.
Any musician–amateur or professional, young or old–is invited to take part. Likewise, businesses, neighbors, schools, churches, and organizations of all shapes and sizes can sign up to offer their outdoor spaces as concert locations.
Music Music Englewood intends to bring people together, boost creativity, and spread joy. We envision a renaissance of activity! Step into summer, reconnect with your neighbors and let out your inner rock star.
