Make Music Day comes to Vermont: Parks host free musical events at locations all over the state

Join us at 5 state parks locations across Vermont on Tuesday, June 21st for the inaugural MakeMusicVT day!  

“MakeMusicVT brings music makers of all ages and experience out to the sidewalks, parks, porches and public places of the state on June 21, 2016, the first day of summer — a free celebration of music-making that takes place on the same day in more than 120 countries and 700 cities across the globe.

Anyone can take part in Make Music Vermont. All day long, anyone lucky enough to be in Vermont can join in to make music or enjoy being surrounded by it. It’s the longest day of the year, the best to spend making music!”
