Live music will once again reverberate throughout Cincinnati on Make Music Day, June 21, 2021. Occurring annually on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, Make Music Cincinnati is a free outdoor music celebration with performances created by anyone and enjoyed by everyone. Parks, coffee shops, restaurants, front porches, and businesses all over Cincinnati will fill their locations with song.
“What better day to go out to the streets and make some music,” says Hayley Voorhees, Make Music Cincinnati co-founder. “The mission of Make Music Cincinnati is to support music education and musical activities by making music accessible to all people.”
Make Music Cincinnati is a participatory experience, open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, genres, and persuasions. Any musician—professional or amateur—can sign up to perform or to lead programs such as drum circles or sing-a-longs.
Artists and venue can continue to sign up until June 18 by visiting makemusicday.org/cincinnati. And everyone can follow the organization’s Facebook page, @makemusiccincinnati, for up-to-date event information.
