Make Music New Canaan


Make Music New Canaan 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.

The first ever Make Music New Canaan was coordinated in 2023 by the not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, The Carriage Barn Arts Center of New Canaan, situated in Waveny Park.

This year The Carriage Barn Arts Center is partnering with the New Canaan Library to bring Make Music Day to New Canaan!

Make Music Day Events can happen in conventional and unconventional spaces. From sidewalks to community gardens, public parks, or even your front porch. Any musician–emerging 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 a venue. All of New Canaan is encouraged to participate! Step into summer, reconnect with neighbors, and dive into your musical creativity…..
