Music For All – June 21st
Over 60 performances and musical activities will take place across the region on
Thursday, June 21, 2018 as part of Make Music Southeastern CT. Make Music Day is
a one-day event where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music,
and other musical events take place in public parks, community organizations,
sidewalks, performance spaces, and businesses on the longest day of the year.
This is the first time that Southeastern CT and the entire state of CT will participate in the
international Make Music Day joining 800 cities and 120 countries.
Musical festivities in Sprague, Groton, Mystic, New London, North Franklin, Norwich,
North Stonington, Norwich, Old Lyme, and Waterford are part of the first Make Music
Connecticut, and the annual global celebration of music-making inspired by France’s
Fête de la Musique.
Performances in New London, organized by New London Music Festivals, Inc. and Neff Production with support from the City of New London, make up more than half of the region’s events.
