Summer Solstice, Santa Fe joins more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries, for the GLOBAL celebration of Make Music Day.
And you are invited to the party!
Make Music Santa Fe is an event fully driven by public participation. Everyone can present some music, and anyone can perform, making it the most inclusive free music event of the summer! Together, we’re creating community events that are open to anyone; players, singers, listeners, beginners looking to be inspired, people who are willing to share their inspiration with the world. And it’s FREE TO EVERYONE! That’s why June 21st, 2021 was proclaimed by Mayor Alan Webber to officially be: Make Music Santa Fe Day. If you want to make music, click on PERFORM, then pick an open venue and time slot. If you want to host some music, click on BECOME A VENUE, and let us know when (between 10a-10p on Tuesday June 21st) your space is available. If you just want to come listen or learn or dance along, click on ATTEND to see our ever-updating calendar of events.
40 years ago, Make Music Day began in Paris, France. The vision was to fill the streets with people joining together in song. Now that vision is a reality all over the world, on the longest day of the summer every year. This year, for the 40th anniversary of the event, we would love to honor the French roots of the celebration. We welcome all accordion players, gypsy jazz aficionados, singers, or French Cafes with a patio or sidewalk waiting to be serenaded.
Why participate with make music day? Because it feels good, it’s easy, and anyone can play a part.
And we can help spread the word about your business. You can offer ANY kind of space or venue- book stores, bike shops, sidewalks, parking lots, ANYWHERE can be a venue!
We can also help promote your social media with an international platform! You can offer ANY performance or presentation- concerts, workshops, jams, drum circles, lessons, discussions, ANYONE can be a performer.
BRING THE NOISE! Make Music Day International recognizes there is a need for representation from the Heavy Metal community, and Santa Fe has no shortage of great metal bands. So let’s show the world what we’ve got!
