Make Music Madison It is a one-day, citywide, free day of music and it is a great way to celebrate our community, to spend time with family and friends, to support local musicians and this year, a great way to celebrate Father's Day!
You can learn more about the day by checking out their website (above) or grabbing this week's Isthmus which has a full schedule of musicians with performance times and locations throughout the city. There will be over 440 concerts, all outdoors and all free! There are a number of performances in which we can all join such as 60's Rock Stage at Vilas Park, the Community Drum Circle at the Goodman Community Center or Ukuleles Unite at James Madison Park. One really unique opportunity this year is It's In Us. You can download the lyrics and come and join the choir at James Madison Park at 3:30.
If you just want to tap your foot and listen, there are hundreds of performances from the No Name String Band on South Pinckney Street or the Civil Engineers on East Mifflin Street to Yammer at Eken Park or Life in a Tree on South Whitney Way.
Take your dad, take a picnic, and feel free to donate to do what you can to ensure the sustainability of this kickoff to summer.
