The following is from event organizer and Radio 94/5 Rising Star Champion Joanna Pearl:
The first annual Make Music Day Temecula will happen throughout Temecula on Sunday, June 21, 2020. Make Music Temecula is a free musical celebration on June 21, with performances occurring throughtout the city.
Make Music Day Temecula is part of the international Make Music Day, which brings free, communitywide, in and outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide. Make Music Day started in France in 1982 as the Fete de la Musique. Every year, the celebration is held on June 21 in hundreds of communities large and small around the globe. This year’s event will be coordinated by Songwriters Workshops with support from Third District Supervisor of Riverside County, Chuck Washington.
Make Music Day Temecula seeks volunteer music lovers looking to uncover, celebrate, and amplify the hidden and not so hidden talent among us. All ages and skill levels are welcome to participate - whether performing an aria, banging on 5-gallon pails, performing on your porch or something in-between! This year, the challenges of COVID-19 make the event a great opportunity to help lift our community’s spirt. It also creates challenges. All activities must integrate social distancing practices and other safety measures recommended by the State of California at the time of the event.
A World’s Smallest Marching Band Tour is being coordinated as part of the event. For more information about how to register a performance, a venue or sign-up for the band tour, or to register another activity that you create, visit http://www.makemusicday.org/temecula. Both individuals and organizations are encouraged to participate. We plan to live-stream performances on our Facebook page @MakeMusicTemecula and Instagram page @MakeMusicTemecula. To see a list of all planned events, please visit our website at: www.makemusicday.org/temecula. Individual events can be added to our sign-up under “Participate”.
