TEMECULA – The first Make Music Day Temecula, a free musical celebration, will take place throughout Temecula Sunday, June 21, with performances occurring throughout the city.
Make Music Day Temecula is part of the international Make Music Day, which brings free, communitywide, indoor and outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide. Make Music Day started in France in 1982 as the Fete de la Musique. Every year, the celebration is held June 21 in hundreds of communities large and small around the globe. This year’s event will be coordinated by Songwriters Workshops with support from 3rd District supervisor of Riverside County, Chuck Washington.
Make Music Day Temecula seeks volunteer music lovers looking to uncover, celebrate and amplify the hidden and not so hidden talent among us. All ages and skill levels are welcome to participate – whether performing an aria, banging on 5-gallon pails, performing on the porch or something in-between. This year, the challenges of COVID-19 make the event a great opportunity to help lift the community’s spirt. It also creates challenges. All activities must integrate social distancing practices and other safety measures recommended by the state of California at the time of the event.
A World’s Smallest Marching Band Tour is being coordinated as part of the event. For more information about how to register a performance, a venue or sign-up for the band tour, or to register another activity that you create, visit http://www.makemusicday.org/temecula. Both individuals and organizations are encouraged to participate. The event will be livestreaming performances on the Facebook page “MakeMusicTemecula” and on Instagram.
