Make Music Chicago presented by Rush Hour Concerts, links Chicago with a massive global music-making festival that takes place on the Summer Solstice every year and allows people of all ages and abilities to play together all day long – for free.

Whether you’ve played an instrument all your life or haven’t sung since kindergarten this Father’s Day, Sunday June 21st enjoy free participatory events all over the city. Come play a part. We’ll have a few headline events and many, many more where you can either walk up and join in or just enjoy some great, free music.

More information about the day itself can be found on this site, including how to register as an artist, a venue or a volunteer, as well as the history of Make Music Chicago and a whole bunch of Frequently Asked Questions. To download the Make Music Chicago brochure, click here.
