Grab your favorite musical instrument, or get your feet tapping with the rhythm as Make Music Day kicks off in Kansas City on Tuesday. The one-day celebration of music will take place in over 1,000 cities in 120 counties across the globe.
Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Any type of musician— young or old, new or experienced—is welcome to participate. The goal is to bring the community together to share music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
In Kansas City, there are over 40 opportunities to join in with performances and workshops across the city starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 11 p.m.
There will be an interactive drum workshop at Martin Luther King Park. A hands-on harmonica tutorial at Lemonade Park and other opportunities to make music if you don’t have experience. There is also plenty of live performances if you’d just like to kick back and enjoy the tunes. Check out the full list of live performances here.
