Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 800 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.
Maconite & local performer, Gloria Stanley introduced the program to us, knowing our strong musical heritage and scene and we were excited to participate.
Thursday, June 21 Macon’s Lunchtime Boogie is how we’ll celebrate our first time participating in Make Music Day. Macon’s Lunchtime Boogie is free and will feature First Friday’s – Macon Soul Spots performers.
These performances will wet your pallet with soulful tunes at various venues. We’re also asking the community, attractions, and youth summer camps to post and share pictures on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtags - #MakeMusicDay, #MakeMusicDayMacon, #VisitMacon
