Make Music Day
All Day Event
Make Music Day 2019
Please join us for the second annual Make Music Day in Appleton, to be held on Friday, June 21. A collaboration between Heid Music and Mile of Music, this one-day music appreciation event will help elevate Appleton as a destination for music lovers and musicians alike.
What is Make Music Day?
In its second year in the Appleton area, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 800 cities across 120 countries every year on June 21. It is designed to celebrate music in all its forms and encourages people to band together to play free public concerts.
In the U.S., Make Music Day is presented by The NAMM Foundation, and coordinated by the Make Music Alliance. This year, more than 65 U.S. cities are organizing Make Music Day celebrations, encompassing thousands of concerts nationwide.
How you can celebrate with us
Join our Make Music Day festivities in grand style. You can collaborate with other community organizations and music groups to create a fun day of free music for our community. Your involvement will also help grow enrollment in the festivities as well as awareness for your organization.
Last year in our inaugural Make Music Day we saw hundreds of people make music with ukuleles, harmonicas, drums, and egg shakers. If you have other ideas, your creativity is welcome and encouraged, but please remember that all events must be participatory so anyone can join in. That’s because the goal of Make Music Day is to have many people participating in making music, from beginners to advanced musicians. Visit www.makemusicday.org to see more ideas from around the country.
To join the Make Music Day movement, please confirm your desire to participate by contacting me via phone or email listed below. Your intent is due by Monday, April 1. Even if you are unsure how your organization can help please let me know that you’re interested in being involved so that we can create a list of ideas! Your organization will be listed as a partner and included in select outreach and promotional materials.
On behalf of Heid Music and Mile of Music, thank you for considering participating in Make Music Day 2019. Our gratitude to Appleton Downtown, Inc. (ADI) for its support in celebrating music in downtown Appleton and helping to make this initiative possible. We are excited that Make Music Day falls on Appleton Downtown’s Art on the Town night which will bring even more people downtown. By joining in this new annual initiative we can all create a greater awareness of the value of music and to showcase the thriving music organizations in our community.
