Make Music New Jersey

Make Music Day

Frank Sinatra. Whitney Houston. Bruce Springsteen. Lauryn Hill. Bon Jovi. Sarah Vaughan. You.

Join the chorus of Make Music New Jersey, where seasoned locals and newcomers alike add their voices to the Garden State’s rich musical legacy. This June 21, 2024, New Jerseyans 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 New Jersey is presented by New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
