MAKE MUSIC DAY is an annual city-wide celebration of music that takes place on June 21. Anyone and everyone is invited to either join and play music, or host performances. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
Strings Attached project will be celebrating the day by playing music in front of the Ferguson Public Library, continuing our commitment to promote music education through libraries.
We’ll have extra ukuleles on hand if anyone would like to stop by and join us on a song or two!
The Strings Attached project began in 2009 and has served youth ages 5 to 17 with low cost or free music instruction weekly in the Ferguson & St. Louis area using American roots music.
