Update: Organizers have announced more details for this year's Make Music Day Cleveland, which takes place on Thursday, June 21.

Some highlights: Samba Joia will perform at noon on Public Square, and local wind, brass or percussion players will play as part of Sousapalooza, which starts at 6:30 p.m. at Shaker Square (register through the website to receive sheet music in advance).

Concerts will take place all day long at a range of venues in Cleveland Oberlin. Acts will even perform at Heinen's downtown and at MetroHealth Medical Center.



At the end of the day, the Beachland Tavern will host a concert.

Original Post: Launched in France in 1982 (where it’s called Fête de la Musique), Make Music Day has become an annual celebration in the States and around the world. On Thursday, June 21, this year’s event will take place in Cleveland, one of 70 U.S. cities (and one of 800 cities in 120 foreign countries) to participate.

According to the press release announcing the event, “Make Music Day celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of ability." The event caters to musicians of all ages, backgrounds and genres. Expect everyone from bucket drummers to opera singers and hip-hop artists to participate.

Performers can register for a specific venue in advance or be assigned a venue. The goal is “to celebrate, create and share music with friends, neighbors and strangers.”

This year’s event in Cleveland will include a mass drum circle and sing along activities.
