MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Make Music Madison is an annual citywide, free, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21.
Initiated in 2013 as Madison’s entry into the international summer solstice music celebration organizers join more than 700 communities around the world in kicking off summer by filling the city with music.
Make Music Madison turns the city into a stage, and offers a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
In 2018 our celebration takes place on a Thursday. Coffee shops, restaurants, front porches, and businesses all over Madison will fill their locations with song. Lunch patrons may find themselves serenaded by a middle school string quartet. And after 5, the city will ring with music.
Make Music Madison is:
•Performed by Anyone, Enjoyed by Everyone.
•A way for all Madisonians to celebrate the summer solstice, enjoying the longest day of the year, while sampling a buffet of musical merriment.
•A DIY city-wide celebration when almost any way to make music can and will happen.
•Open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical persuasions.
The next Make Music Madison will take place on the summer solstice, Thursday, June 21, 2018.
