Make Music Day 2017 Celebration in Sacramento
Map to new location
Sacramento, CA. June 21, 2017
Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world held on the summer solstice, June 21st. Make Music Day is open to people of all ages and to all types of musicians, from amateur to professional players. It all started ten years ago, when the Fête de la Musique from France came to North America with the debut of Make Music New York. Starting as a small grassroots initiative by a team of volunteers, the event quickly became an immense success. In recent years, other cities across the continent have launched their own Make Music celebrations. On June 21, 2016, thirty-eight North American cities organized 3,238 free concerts at 1,078 locations, all on a single day.
Tim’s Music, located at 6818 Fair Oaks boulevard in Carmichael, CA, plans to hold an event to celebrate this holiday starting at 10 am until around 5pm. The event will include performances inside and outside of the store throughout the day, featuring community groups from the greater Sacramento area. The celebration will also include a raffle, carnival style games, and “sound exploration” booths where participants will have the opportunity to try playing musical instruments, make their own instruments out of household materials, learn about instruments they may not have seen before, and so much more!
