Make Music Day is June 21

Come celebrate Make Music Day on June 21 at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad. It’s also the 1st day of summer, of course!


Fête de la Musique, as it is called in France where it originated in 1982, is now celebrated in more than 1000 cities in 120 countries on June 21. The original vision of the founders was a day of music for everyone to enjoy, whether they make the music or just listen, everywhere in each city.


That dream was realized and has spread throughout the world, coming to New York 14 years ago. On June 21, 2022 there were over 3800 free concerts in 104 US cities alone.


The festivities at the Museum of Making Music on Make Music Day will include some special guests, a food truck, live performances, and of course hands-on opportunities to make music throughout the day. If you have not visited the Museum of Making Music it is a real treat to experience in person. You can expect it to be crowded.


Here’s more information about the Make Music Day happenings at the Museum.


Attendance is FREE but you should RSVP online.


Take a quick tour of the Museum of Making Music in this video from a visit a number of years ago.



So how is YOUR community celebrating this world-wide day of music? And will you be participating, and, if so, how?


Why not attend an event, or simply make your OWN music. And if you can't make music, just find some to listen to.

You're right Nina Hollander, Broker  I've been to the Museum of Making Music a number of times but this event in particular would be fun to attend. If not, I'll certainly have music on at home to celebrate the day!

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Jeff,

You just shared some info that I had no clue about. I never heard about that on June 21st.

We have a really nice but small venue for concerts but I think this month is a movie night every Friday.  Last month were concerts every Friday.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

It was news for me as well! Odd that I've not ever heard of it.

We have free movies coming up in July. It's that time of year for outdoor concerts and movies.

Enjoy your weekend!

Photo was of an outdoor concert pre-pandemic Endre Barath, Jr. but I suspect it will be like this for the summer concerts.

I did not know that make music day was coming up, haha.  Sounds like there will be a lot of fun in your area!  I am not musical at all, so I won't be making music, but I enjoy the music that others make.

It should be a fun celebration for the music makers AND the music listeners Brian England

Loved your post, Jeff, on Make Music Day in Carlsbad.  And I especially loved your beautiful video of a tour of Museum of Making Music and the haunting background music.  I studied for years wanting to be a concert pianist and was mesmerized by the sounds.

Thank you Jane Chaulklin-Schott  The Museum is a real treasure for anyone who likes music. Are you still playing piano?

Yes, I taught piano for a number of years and was involved in a number of stage show musicals through the years.  Never went on to be that concert pianist, instead married and loved having 9 nine children - 5 girls and 4 boys.  That kept me and still keeps me very busy and involved.  Haha... But, LOVE MUSIC.  Don't quite know how all those 6 -8 hours piano practice per day played in my life?!?  Hahaha ~  Do you play an instrument?

Hi Jane Chaulklin-Schott 

Took violin lessons for a year in 3rd grade but didn't like it. Played piano in junior high for a few years and also played the clarinet in high school - was in the marching band and orchestra. All that ended with graduation.

Sounds to me like you're a talented musician and have an inborn gift of music.  I once had a band and would have loved to have had you as part of it.  Jeff, there are three instruments I would have loved to master -- the violin, the harp, and the saxophone.  I managed to add Hawaiian Guitar, and a 12 string acoustic Humming Bird Guitar to my studies.  That 12-string came in real handy for Church Services  -- (played the organ and guitar) and many Campsite Sing-Alongs.  The Hawaiian Guitar was my introduction to musical instruments when I was 7 years old.  I remember carrying my guitar to the bus stop five blocks and then, struggling to carry it up the huge bus steps....the guitar and case was bigger than me and probably weighted the same.  But I always managed to get to my guitar music lessons.  Hahaha....
Think you and I would enjoy sharing with one another all our experiences with music --even some embarrassing moments we might have had.  Hahahaha....
