MAKE MUSIC DAY SEATTLE JUNE 21st 2022
Make Music Day Seattle, the annual global celebration of music held on the
summer solstice returns to Seattle this year on June 21 with an exciting,
creative, and diverse lineup of both virtual and in-person music-making
events that will immerse and enthrall participants while spotlighting music’s
power to connect, comfort, unite, and uplift. Over 90 U.S. cities will take part in
the live, free daylong celebration, encompassing over 5,000 concerts,
performances, music lessons, jam sessions, and other musical events
Completely different from a traditional music festival, Make Music Day Seattle
celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of
age, ethnicity, background or skill level. Make Music Day Seattle is an open
invitation for everyone to make, enjoy, perform, teach, learn and experience
music on the longest day of the year. Due to the pandemic, last year’s
celebration was largely virtual. In-person events will return in 2022.
Launched in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day has
become an international phenomenon, celebrated by hundreds of millions of
people in over 1,000 cities in 120 countries. Make Music Day Seattle is
presented in the U.S. by Rainier Avenue Radio.

only those samples provided, and nothing more.

Dance Music Initiative, Flight Ukuleles, Hohner Harmonicas, Music

MAKE MUSIC SEATTLE’S 5TH YEAR WENT INTERNATIONAL ON JUNE 21ST 2019!
2019 marked the first year of Make Music Seattle’s management by community radio station RainierAvenueRadio.World to help grow this local celebration of the worldwide holiday MAKE MUSIC DAY. Make Music Day provides opportunities to participate in and observe free live music performances at all-ages public venues across the city on the longest day of the year, June 21. Make Music Day launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique and is now held in 120 countries & over 1000 cities every Summer Solstice. Free. All Ages. Public. Music Making for Everyone!
Make Music Seattle 2019 organized 40+ events at over a dozen locations across Greater Seattle including music marathons (9 hours each location) at Westlake Park on 4th & Pine and under the Seattle Great Wheel on the Friends of Waterfront Seattle Pier 58, plus events in Columbia City, North Seattle, West and South Seattle, Bellevue and Lynnwood. Hundreds of performers and participants, and hundreds of observers enjoyed a diverse array of music activities and styles of performances.
There was a harmonica lesson with free harmonicas, an open music jam, youth singer-songwriters and Broadway-style dancers, plus performances including rock, jazz, Klezmer, a father/son rap duo, and reggae at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle.
The Waterfront HotSpot stage featured teen student performances, singer-songwriters, a Turkish band with a ballerina, a DJ competition and Ableton beatmaking demonstration, plus performances including soul, hard rock, and closing with a 9-piece ukulele orchestra.
Additional activities across the city included a songwriter showcase with a dozen performances, a rap battle, and a production class at RainierAvenueRadio.world studios and Crowdsource Choir in Columbia City; a youth showcase by Totem Star in West Seattle; featured music on the rooftop of the Liberty Bank Building, an all-ages jam at a venue in Georgetown, a performance outside of Planet Fitness in Rainier Beach, plus three Verity Credit Union branches hosted live music.
