Make Music Day Southeastern CT is Tuesday, June 21, 2022!

Make Music Day Southeastern CT is returning on June 21, 2022, for our region’s 5th annual celebration. This year, we expect a full schedule of in person, live public performances.

We invite you to join in one of the many Make Music Day initiatives that will take place this year in Southeastern CT. You can also curate and share your own free performance.

Unlike traditional music festivals, Make Music Southeastern CT is an open invitation for everyone to make music anywhere and everywhere.

Musicians & Host Locations – How Can You Participate?

Make Music Southeastern CT 2022 will feature live, in-person performances (following state and local protocols). All Make Music Southeastern CT performances must be free to attend and family-friendly.

Anyone interested in celebrating Make Music Day by performing or hosting a performance(s) should register with us. Registered performances appear on the online Make Music Day Southeastern CT schedule and will be promoted on social media, our website, and via email.
