What Is Make Music Day?
Make Music Day is most simply a day for musical appreciation and sharing and will involve hundreds of local music makers. Making Music magazine will host four “mass appeal” events for percussion, guitar, ukulele, and harmonica players in various Downtown Syracuse parks. All genres and ages of music makers are encouraged to participate, from beginning students to professionals, regardless of ability.
