Make Music Milwaukee
June 21, 2023
10:00 AM / 10:00 PM
Make Music Milwaukee will return for its 7th year of free musical events and activities across the greater Milwaukee area on Wednesday, June21. Make Music Milwaukee is part of Make Music Day, a global music celebration that takes place on the summer solstice each year and brings people of all ages and skill levels together to make music. This year over 100 U.S. cities and 21 Wisconsin cities will host Make Music performances across the country as part of the world’s largest annual music event.
Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as Fête de la Musique and has spread to over 1,000 cities across 120 countries. Completely different from a typical musical festival, Make Music concerts are performed by anyone who wants to take part and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend. From classical to folk, hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock, instrument petting zoos to professional performances, live music of all kinds resounds on streets, sidewalks, porches, plazas, parks, gardens, store fronts and other public spaces on the longest day of the year.
Last year, over 30 concerts and events were given for Make Music Milwaukee, and we are more excited than ever as we approach this year’s celebration. Highlights of Make Music Milwaukee will include:
- The Ukuladies at Estabrook Park Beer Garden
- Hal Leonard Employee performance at Hal Leonard Corporation
- Performances and musical activities at multiple participating Milwaukee Public Library locations
- With more events and performances being added daily
