On Wednesday, June 21st, Philadelphia will be participating in Make Music Day, an “all day, open access, free ‘do it yourself’ festival.” The festival is curated by the Make Music Alliance and spans 750 cities in 120 countries. This is a fortuitous opportunity for artists of all skill levels and experience to showcase their talent in an inclusive format. The event allows communities to access and unite around free live performances in their neighborhood, essentially breaking down barriers for musicians and music lovers alike. Artists will be able to showcase their talent and reach a wider audience of people who will have a unique opportunity to experience their show. Make sure to support your local musicians, parks, venues, and community spaces participating in shows around the city! Two particular concerts will take place in the River Wards neighborhoods: Mazi Kabi at the Boom Room from 6:15-6:30 and a showcase of folk and funk at Powers Park. The full listing of Philadelphia Make Music Day events can be found here.
