Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm is hosting Make Music Allen on June 21st in honor of International Make Music Day! This live, free musical celebration will feature music making at various locations throughout Watters Creek. Make Music Day highlights the North Texas music community; from Rock & Roll to Bach and from aspiring musicians to seasoned professionals. With more than 27 performances planned, Make Music Allen is a free event and all ages are welcome.
Mass Appeal, part of Make Music Day, brings together thousands of musicians across the country – of all levels and ages – to make music in single-instrument groups large and small. Mass Appeal gatherings are a unique opportunity for players to meet up with others and jam. A free beginner lesson will take place prior to each Mass Appeal event and is open to anyone who would like to attend.
Bucket Drumming – Under the trees on The Green
Mini lesson/Mass Appeal: 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
The Vic Firth Company is supporting our bucket drumming event. The first 25 participants – kids and adults, professionals and amateurs, will be handed a pair of Vic Firth sticks and invited to make music together. The goal is to spread the message that to make music, all you need is a beat in your heart… and a pair of sticks. Website: vicfirth.com
A Guitar Jam will take place at the same location under the trees on the Green from 4:30 pm – 6 pm
Harmonica Lesson with Jim Longley from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm by the Fireplace
Harmonica Mass Appeal by the Fireplace from 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Harmonicas provided.
Make Music Day is not a typical music festival. It is open to anyone who wants to participate. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — are invited to sign up through the Watters Creek office to share their music with the public. It is a free celebration of music around the world, which was launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique. Today, it is held on the same day [June 21] in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
