Make Music Winter Set to Return

Make Music Winter is officially set to return on Dec. 21. The nationwide celebration, hosted by the NAMM Foundation and coordinated by Make Music Alliance, will feature parades, performances and events in more than 30 U.S. cities. The annual event is the winter version of Make Music Day, the global celebration of music that occurs each year on June 21.

"Last year, Make Music Winter launched nationwide for the first time, and we were delighted that this new concept was immediately embraced by music-makers around the country," said Aaron Friedman, president of Make Music Alliance. "This year, over 30 cities have already come on board to bring magical, musical events to their communities on Dec. 21 and we expect many more cities to join in the celebration."

Cities participating in Make Music Winter include Montclair, New Jersey; Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin; and Chicago. There will also be a flagship event in New York City.

All Make Music Winter happenings are free and open to the public.
