The Ridgefield Arts Council Celebrates Make Music Day

with Make Music Ridgefield

participating in a global celebration

of making music on the longest day of the year

Make Music Ridgefield is pleased to announce that Steinway of Greenwich will be donating a piano which will be placed on Main Street for anyone to stop by and play during Make Music Day on Friday, June 21. Special guest artist Jon Batiste, who is performing that evening at the Ridgefield Playhouse, will stop by during the day for an impromptu “Make Music Day” performance!! Thanks to Allison Stockel from the Ridgefield Playhouse for making this happen. Other events include:

The School of Rock will be hosting an instrument “petting zoo” near the stage in Ballard Park – a great opportunity to try out a new instrument.

The Ridgefield Library will be hosting a community sing-a-long with Cantor Deborah Katchko-Grey at 1pm.

Members of the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra will be playing in front of Town Hall at 12:30pm. They will also be joined by members of the Western CT. Youth Orchestra.

We welcome all musicians, singers and music makers to register online at www.makemusicday.org/ridgefield. Businesses that would like to host can register at the same site.

About Make Music Ridgefield: Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Ridgefield 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. All Make Music Ridgefield day events are free and open to the public.

About the Ridgefield Arts Council: Founded in 1997, the mission of the Ridgefield Arts Council, a town appointed committee, is to inform, entertain, and inspire those who appreciate and create art in all its genres. The council generates attention for and facilitates collaboration between members of Ridgefield’s vibrant arts community.

About Make Music Day: Make Music Day is presented by the NAMM Foundation, and coordinated by the Make Music Alliance.
