National Make Music Day in USA in 2024
This holiday began in France, but has made its way to America, where it's called National Make Music Day.
In the spirit of the holiday, it’s encouraged that musicians of all kinds host interactive performances where audience members can learn and join in. The Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF) is the force that makes this happen in the U.S., providing grants to performers and ensembles who are willing to invite the public to shows for National Make Music Day.
Make Music Day was dreamt up by France’s Ministry of Culture in 1982. The idea is that everyone could play music or host free outdoor performances. (In France, it’s called Fête De La Musique.)
Musicians with a range of abilities and specializing in a wide array of genres give free performances outdoors — in parks, storefronts and public spaces, and even on sidewalks and in backyards.
Make Music Day has become a national holiday in Paris, where around 70 per cent of Parisians have participated in the event at some point.
Make Music Day happens each year on the summer solstice to celebrate the longest day of the year. It encourages people to celebrate music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and put on free outdoor concerts.
