Update: Make Music 2020

Like all of you, we are grappling with the huge impact the coronavirus is having around the world. As we plan for Make Music Day on June 21, we don’t know if public gatherings will be allowed or if we’ll still be social distancing.

Despite all this, we are still planning on recognizing Make Music Day on June 21. Unlike traditional music festivals, MMD is an open invitation for everyone to make music anywhere.

Right now we are focusing on online MMD initiatives and we’ll be sharing ideas on how to create your own instruments! Stay tuned!

In this time of social distancing, music’s powerful role to bring us together as a community is more important than ever. We can still stay connected online and celebrate music.

More details to come in the following days and weeks ahead. And if you’d like to share YOUR ideas for MMD, please reach out to us at [email protected]

Mark your calendars for Green Bay’s FIRST Make Music Day, Sunday, June 21.

Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

We are in the planning stages of this exciting day! To learn how you or your venue can become involved in Green Bay’s Make Music Day, please give us a call at 435-5220.
