      Arts Wisconsin is teaming up with Make Music Day, a worldwide celebration of music, to get people, organizations, businesses and communities throughout Wisconsin interested and involved in music and community, and to promote Make Music Day in Wisconsin as an annual event.

      Aaron Friedman, Director of Make Music Day, based in NYC, will be traveling around Wisconsin October 26-30, 2019, to promote Wisconsin’s participation statewide in Make Music Day. The next Make Music Day will happen worldwide on Sunday, June 21, 2020.

      Everyone interested in learning more about and participating in Make Music Wisconsin is invited to a community meeting with Aaron Friedman of Make Music Day and Anne Katz of Arts Wisconsin on Tuesday, October 29, 7-8 pm, at the Neville Public Museum.

      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 Day 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, 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. Any musician, amateur or professional, young or old, and businesses, buildings, schools, churches and synagogues, and other institutions, can participate. This is a great opportunity for community building, civic engagement, and creative placemaking around a musical holiday.

      Seven Wisconsin communities (Appleton, Land o’Lakes, Madison, Milwaukee, Platteville, Reedsburg, Rhinelander) are already involved with Make Music Wisconsin, and that number will grow starting in 2020. All Wisconsin communities are encouraged to participate.

      Musicians and performers, elected officials, for-profit and non-profit businesses, educators, civic leaders, and the general public are invited to attend the meetings. The meetings will feature information about the global Make Music Day event and Make Music Wisconsin participation by communities large and small. Refreshments will be provided.

      RSVP to Anne Katz, Arts Wisconsin, at akatz@artswisconsin.org (RSVP is not required to attend, but would be helpful so we know how many people to plan for). Parking is available in the museum parking lot.

      Make Music Day is presented by the NAMM Foundation and coordinated by the nonprofit Make Music Alliance. More info at www.makemusicday.org. Arts Wisconsin is Wisconsin’s community cultural development organization, the only independent statewide organization providing a leadership forum to advance the local and statewide creative economy, integrate the arts and creativity in education, educate entrepreneurs and activists, and engage policy-makers and the public as a catalyst for dialogue, information, and action.
