Description

Friday, June 21, 9am–10pm

The City of Denton joins the Make Music Day celebration (makemusicday.org) with numerous events on June 21. Make Music Day is a one-day event where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music, and other musical events take place around the world on the longest day of the year. Musical festivities in Denton are part of a global celebration of music making in over 750 cities inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique.

In cooperation with Pender’s Music Company, the Denton Convention and Visitors Bureau, Denton Main Street Association and Texas Woman’s University department of music and theatre, the City of Denton invites everyone from professional musicians to people who have never picked up an instrument to join in the global music celebration by attending one of the many events scheduled on the Denton Courthouse-on-the-Square (CHOS) for the day.

Music has been shown to strengthen social connectivity, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, stimulate memory, and is integral to a well-rounded, enjoyable life. By participating in Make Music Day, we encourage every form of music making. Denton is, after all, a music-friendly certified city. National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) members and partners from coast to coast will open their doors, joining in their communities’ celebrations of Make Music Day.

The instrument petting zoo will take place on June 21 from 9am–2pm, on the Locust Street side of the Courthouse-on-the-Square. Kids of all ages can try out a variety of percussion, string, and wind instruments in Coyote Music Studio’s Instrument Petting Zoo. Non-musicians, beginners, and experienced musicians are all welcome to play. Be sure to bring your little ones out for Musical Storytime with music therapist and teacher, Tonya Blum.
