Beginning on June 21st, Montclair Held Their Fifth Annual Make Music Day Celebration, Bringing Three Days of Performances and Even More Fun.
Last year, the event broke records, hosting 33 musical events and over 100 performances. But in 2018, the musical celebration was bigger and better than ever before, taking place over three days, all filled with art, fun activities, and of course, a lot of music. The annual event kicked off on the 21st, while the 22nd was entitled “DIY Friday” including art, music and more. And the three-day event was rounded out with Make Music Saturday on June 23rd.
According to the Make Music Day website, “Held annually on June 21st, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 800 cities across 120 countries. Make Music Day is a day where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music and other musical events take place around the world on the longest day of the year.” Montclair was just one of over 65 cities across the United States participating in the event.
Make Music Day is truly a community effort, run by volunteers, musicians, small business owners, non-profits, and students. Performances were held in venues all around Montclair, bringing joy and music across town. Please consider donating.
