This year, College Station is excited to partake in Make Music Day 2024. Since 1982, Make Music Day has been held on the summer solstice, June 21st, essentially the longest day of the year. Make Music Day originated in France, and 15 years ago, crossed the Atlantic, making its debut of Make Music New York; four decades later, Make Music Day has spread throughout the world and is now celebrated in more than 2,000 cities in 120 different countries. 

Make Music Day College Station is set to be a wild and wonderful mix of free, public musical events city wide and performed by anyone who wants to take part and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend. From classical to folk, hip hop to Latin jazz and punk rock, live music of all kinds resounds on streets, sidewalks, porches, parks, gardens, store fronts, and other public spaces on the longest day of the year. Any musician, amateur or professional, young or old, is invited to take part by signing up at Make Music Day College Station - registration closes on June 19th. Likewise, businesses, buildings, schools, churches, and other institutions can visit the website to offer their spaces as concert locations. 

The festivities in College Station will feature a diverse range of performances from local bands, solo artists, and community groups, ensuring there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Special workshops and interactive jam sessions will be available throughout the day, offering a unique opportunity for participants to learn new skills, collaborate with fellow musicians, and explore different musical genres. 

Local schools and music educators are encouraged to bring their students to perform or to simply experience the joy of live music. This event is a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to gain performance experience and for the community to discover and nurture local talent. 

We want to make the best of the inaugural Make Music Day in College Station and we need YOU to make it happen! Come out to showcase your musical talents and support local music. Whether you’re strumming a guitar, playing the piano, or singing your heart out, your participation will contribute to an unforgettable day of music and community spirit. Let’s come together to make the first Make Music Day College Station a resounding success!
