It’s time to make music again, El Paso! The El Paso International Music Foundation is returning to a full schedule of in-person and online Make Music Day events on Tuesday, June 21.
Make Music Day launched in France in 1982 and takes place every year on the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It is open to anyone who wants to participate and every kind of musician — young, old, amateur, professional — of every type of musical persuasion. It turns parks and streets into concert venues.
El Paso events include performances by Texas Hart, Ray Arreola and 1-800, a rhythm band jam, bucket drumming, a city-wide jam session, a harmonica class, and a ukulele class. Participating venues are Keystone Heritage Park and Botanical Gardens, 4220 Doniphan; Genuine Reference Studios, 3945 Doniphan Park Circle, Suite B; and Star City Studios, 120 W. Castellano.
Three venues are hosting live music nights as part of Make Music Day: Cash Restaurant and Bar, 11335 Montwood; MONA Bar of Modern Art, 410 ½ E. San Antonio; and The Rockin’ Bar, 3315 Dyer.
