Make Music Day - Free Activities

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 10 AM
Museum of Making Music
Free
Pay-What-You-Wish.

The Museum of Making Music is a proud participant in Make Music Day, a free global celebration of music on June 21. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

The Museum of Making Music joins the global Make Music Day celebration with a new special exhibition called "What Good is Music?" and musical activities all day long. There is something for everyone during Make Music Day!

Inside the Museum Galleries (featuring "Pay-What-You-Wish" Admission):

Event Schedule:

ALL DAY (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.) - What Good is Music? Exhibition Opening
Get a first look at the Museum of Making Music's newest exhibition: What Good is Music? Chances are you’ve got some ideas about what “good music” is. But what about the good of music? What is music good for? What good does music do? What good is it for you, for us, and for the world? We invite you to consider these questions and to join us in a conversation about the good of music!
