Sun Prairie is hosting Make Music Day on Tuesday, June 21, 2022. The event takes place globally on the summer solstice each year and brings people of all ages and skill levels together to make music. Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as the 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.
Reflecting the strong music education tradition in Sun Prairie, performers of any skill level are invited to sign-up to share their musical talent at performance spaces throughout the city. From young music students to seasoned professionals, Make Music Sun Prairie is for everyone!
Performance areas will be spread across six parks with music starting at 10:00 am at Vandenberg Park and ending with a Concerts in the Park performance featuring Soggy Prairie at 6:00 pm at Wetmore Park. Planned activities include a drum circle, ukulele jam, drop-in rock band jam session, open-mic performances, and musical instrument crafts.
Make Music Sun Prairie is co-sponsored by Prairie Music & Arts, Sun Prairie Community Schools, Sun Prairie Parks, Recreation & Forestry, the McKenzie Family Boys and Girls Club, Sun Prairie Public Library, and Sun Prairie Dream Park. All Make Music Sun Prairie activities are free and open to the public.
