Make Music Miami: Free ‘celebration of music’

Celebrate the summer solstice with Make Music Miami (MMM) and make the longest day of the year a special one with performances from local musicians!

MMM is the Miami edition of Make Music Day, which takes place June 21 and is billed as “a free celebration of music around the world.” There will be a variety of in-person concerts throughout South Florida.

The 2022 Miami edition of the global event will feature unique ways that everyone can encounter music. You can either be part of the event or partake in a special project.

“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,” according to the MMM website.

If you can’t make the live performances, be sure to check the official Facebook page for livestreams and updates!
