What is Make Music Southeastern CT?
Make Music Southeastern CT 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 1,000 communities around the world.
Make Music Southeastern CT features musicians of all abilities and music from any genre. Everyone is invited to participate virtually and for live performances (in accordance with state and local guidelines), in this international day of music by performing, providing an outdoor space, appreciating, or volunteering.
All are welcome to participate- no experience necessary! Join a diverse community of musicians and help fill every town and city in Southeastern CT with music.
Make Music Southeastern CT is brought to you by the Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition as part of our mission to improve the economy, vitality and quality of life in Southeastern Connecticut by supporting the arts, cultural and creative community.
Make Music Day Connecticut is being administered in partnership with the Connecticut Office of the Arts, Make Music Day Alliance and New London Music Festivals. With support of the Department of Economic & Community Development/CT Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Make Music Southeastern CT is modeled after a Parisian tradition (Fête de la Musique) that began in 1982 as a tribute to the Summer Solstice. More specifically, each June 21st Paris is filled with musicians of all kinds performing on sidewalks, lawns, balconies, in parks, etc. for anyone to enjoy at no cost. In 2007, Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York. Ever since, cities around the world have been starting their own Make Music days.
