MAKE MUSIC PALM BEACH COUNTY TO DEBUT ON JUNE 21 IN GLOBAL MUSIC CELEBRATION GOING VIRTUAL THIS YEAR
Local and National Organizers and Musicians Have Developed New, Creative, Social Distanced Ways for Anyone to Participate in the Annual Global Celebration on June 21
Palm Beach County – The inaugural Make Music Palm Beach County will launch on Sunday, June 21 as part of Make Music Day, the worldwide music celebration held annually on the summer solstice. Make Music Day is going virtual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Typically featuring free outdoor concerts, performances, music lessons jam sessions and other musical events on streets, sidewalks, parks and public spaces across the U.S., this year’s Make Music Day will take a virtual approach to encourage all people, of all musical abilities, to celebrate the joy of making music. Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, and has spread across 120 countries. Over 85 U.S. cities, including Miami, Nashville, New York, Chicago and many more will all take part in Make Music Day 2020, further demonstrating the power of music to unite and uplift people, spread joy and build community amid this challenging and unprecedented time.
Palm Beach County residents are encouraged to participate by performing, hosting a performance or becoming part of our county-wide audience. So start planning now! It can be as simple as a person or family singing or playing instruments online, on their front porch or in a parade down your sidewalk …or as challenging as a group producing a zoom concert! …think creatively – virtually – musically! We welcome ALL to join the celebration! Registration to participate or host a performance has begun at makemusicday.org/palmbeachcounty.
