Make Music Day – Marshfield
Sun, June 21, 2020
Join the worldwide celebration of music on 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 invite singers, bands and instrumentalists at all levels to participate in this event. Share your joy of music with friends, family, and the whole community. This is Marshfield’s first year participating in this worldwide event so help spread the word!
