Make Music Day 2020

June 21

Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21, celebrated on June 21 in over 1000 cities in 120 countries around the world! This year in 2020 our format may change to a “virtual celebration” with online streaming, but the SPIRIT of community involvement and participation for all remains the same. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music 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.

Make Music Davis – On June 21st, 2017, Davis, CA joined the global celebration of music for the first time and will continue for its fourth year in 2020. We thank the good folks at The Davis Dirt for their stellar organization skills 2017 – 2019. Now in 2020 we at Davis Media Access and KDRT 95.7 FM community radio will take it on using social distancing and a virtual celebration in keeping with the current COVID-19 guidelines. All are welcome and encouraged to help fill the air with music!

KDRT 95.7 FM will host a special broadcast called the Make Music Davis Song Showcase, where over 20 local musicians of all ages and genres have contributed videos and will join us briefly on the air to share their songs and celebrate our community of music lovers. This special show will air on KDRT June 21, at 10 – 11:30 AM, and again at 6 – 7:30 PM, and will be available to stream on YouTube via a link at makemusicdavis.org. Additionally from 11:30 AM-1 PM and from 7:30-9 PM June 21, KDRT will air special live concert recordings from some of the region’s most beloved bands. Throughout the day, via the Make Music Davis Facebook page, we will feature special lesson videos created by local instructors and additional videos sent in by the community. We will also share links to the global online celebration via makemusicdavis.org
