Watch the Save the Date video we released for Make Music Chattanooga below.
Make Music Chattanooga is a part of Make Music Day. Make Music Day, or Fêta De La Musique, is a worldwide celebration of music, where musicians – of all levels at any age – will fill the city’s streets, parks, rooftops, etc., playing live music on June 21st (the Summer Solstice). This event was started in France in 1982 and has grown to include over 700 cities in 120 different countries. All cities are given the freedom to celebrate Make Music Day in whatever way best represents their city’s talent, people, and musical culture.
All events are:
Free (no tickets, no musicians or audience members are charged)
Participatory (open to any musicians at any level who wish to participate)
Featuring live music performances
For all ages and genres (no restrictions on kinds of music)
At multiple venues (not just one concert in one location)
In public spaces (that are accessible and welcoming to everyone)
On June 21st (the longest day of the year)
This is our third year. Make Music Chattanooga is 100% volunteer-ran. The non-profit SoundCorps is our fiscal sponsor.
Last year we had over 75 concerts and other musical events and activities in 11 different locations throughout Chattanooga starting at 9:00 in the morning until after midnight the next day.
Interested in participating? Great! We need performers, volunteers and unique venues. Email me, Taryn Balwinski at Chattanooga@MakeMusicDay.org to be notified when registration opens in late February. You can also RSVP to the Facebook Event.
