Make Music North Carolina

Make Music Day

James Taylor. Nina Simone. Ben Folds. John Coltrane. Randy Travis. Roberta Flack. You.

Join the chorus of Make Music North Carolina, where seasoned locals and newcomers alike add their voices to the Tar Heel State’s rich musical legacy. This June 21, 2024, North Carolinians will harmonize to celebrate the Summer Solstice, embracing the longest day of the year with the power of music.

We invite artists of all ages and genres, amateur and professional alike, to sign up to perform free concerts on June 21 in public spaces throughout the state. Everyone is welcome, and we mean everyone — even if you’ve never touched an instrument before, our regional organizers will have free music lessons and special hands-on music-making opportunities just for you. And if you have a location to offer — a storefront, park, porch, or sidewalk — we invite you to sign up to host musicians on June 21. Just click on your local celebration to get started!

Make Music North Carolina is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council.
