Interested in learning more about performing during Make Music Philly 2016? Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to join the celebration! The event is an all-ages, all-inclusive celebration of music, so whether you’re in a band, a solo artist, a child, a senior, a saxophonist or a thereminist, there’s a spot for you to perform!
A Make Music Philly venue can be a anything and anywhere. Last year we hosted shows at breweries, retail stores, a recording studio, restaurants and churches. Any corner of the city can become a backdrop for live music, from sidewalks to your front stoop to a busy SEPTA stop… you name it!
2016 Mass Appeal Events are coming soon!
In the meantime, check out what we did last year:
- Drum Jam, sponsored by Zildjian, hosted by the Philly Drum Project
- Uke Night, accessories from Kala and songbooks from Alfred
- Harmonica Jam, sponsored by Hohner Mass Appeal Harmonicas and hosted by John Colgan-Davis of the Dukes of Destiny
