On June 21, 2019 Pittsburgh will host its fifth annual Make Music Pittsburgh in all of the inner city neighborhoods. Make Music Pittsburgh is a festival designed to showcase local musical talent and inspire others to play music. Originally started in France in 1982, Pittsburgh will be one of over 700 cities playing music on June 21, 2019 as part of a global Make Music Day celebration. Whether it’s Hip-Hop in Lawrenceville, Gospel in Highland Park, Bluegrass in Squirrel Hill, Classical in the Hill District, or kids playing the harmonica in Bloomfield, Make Music Pittsburgh is about enjoying music in its purest form with Pittsburgh flare. Make Music Pittsburgh will be a day of music inspired and created by those who live in our region and visitors who decide to join us. Musicians sign up to play and businesses and homes sign up to host musicians outside of their places. Every musician has the power to choose where they are located and every location can match with their preferred style of music – just keep it outdoors so everyone can enjoy!
This June 21st every quiet space in Pittsburgh will be filled with live music. Everyone is encouraged to participate by either playing music outside, providing an outdoor space, volunteering, or walking around and listening to the various concerts around the city. Performers of all ages, levels, and styles of music are welcome!!
