Make Music New Haven is a part of the international Make Music Day movement which brings free, community-wide, musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide. Every year, the celebration is held on June 21, the summer solstice, in more than 800 communities around the world.
Make Music Day events are organized with, for, and by the community. We are inclusive to all kinds of performers and audience members. Events can happen in expected and unexpected places across the region, from sidewalks to community gardens, public parks to your front porch. Performers can live stream their concert live in-person (fingers crossed!) or virtually from home.
Any musician–amateur or professional, young or old–is invited to take part. Likewise, businesses, neighbors, schools, churches, and organizations of all shapes and sizes can sign up to offer their outdoor spaces as concert locations. All of Greater New Haven is included.
Music New Haven intends to bring people together, boost creativity, and spread joy. We envision a renaissance of activity! Step into summer, reconnect with your neighbors and let out your inner rock star.
