Ambassadors are the official cheerleaders of Make Music Cincinnati. They are an important part of Make Music Day because they help spread the word on social media and through word of mouth. Sign up today and see the impact your personal network has on making music in Cincinnati! To become an Ambassador, click here: AMBASSADOR

What does it cost and where does the money go?  The work of small army of volunteers makes it possible to pull this off on such a limited budget, but unavoidable costs remain, including: publicity and advertising that are critical to the success of the event, renting sound systems for various venues, musical instruments for interactive venues, and many smaller items such as insurance and event permitting. Someday, we’d love to pay all of the musicians who participate! 

*We are a 501(c)(3), your donations are tax deductible!

In-Kind Donations:

Donate venue space, food, musical instruments, supplies, marketing opportunities, etc.

Media and Marketing Donations:

Help us promote the event through social media, press releases, print materials, and word of mouth!


Our partners benefit from co-marketing with an event that has become a summer highlight, and receive extensive exposure through print and radio advertising, prominent placement on a highly trafficked website and mobile app, and on posters and banners venues all over the city. When the Solstice rolls around, we are everywhere. All sponsors receive a complimentary invite to the MMC Recognition Event in August, which highlights the event for the year, and provides meaningful networking opportunities.
