Make Music Wisconsin

Les Paul. Liberace. Skylar Grey. Richard Davis. Bon Iver. Chris Kroeze. Al Jarreau. You.

Make Music Wisconsin offers all native and newcomer residents of the Badger State the opportunity to add a chorus to the rich musical history of Wisconsin. On Tuesday, June 21, 2022, Wisconsinites will celebrate the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, with song.

We invite artists of all ages and genres, amateur and professional alike, to sign up to perform free concerts on June 21 in public spaces throughout the state. Everyone is welcome, and we mean everyone — even if you’ve never touched an instrument before, our regional organizers will have free music lessons and special hands-on music making opportunities just for you. And if you have a location to offer — a storefront, park, porch, or sidewalk — we invite you to sign up to host musicians on June 21. Just click on your local celebration to get started!

Make Music Wisconsin is presented by Create Wisconsin, with assistance from the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, Wisconsin Public Radio, and Wisconsin School Music Association. For more information, contact Anne Katz:
