Make Music Day offers dozens of song possibilities throughout the region Thursday
Hey, you! Yeah, you, reading this bet in The Day's "Night & Day" entertainment guide.
What's the idea of not singing out loud?! You better than everyone else?
After all, it's International Make Music Day and, along with the rest of the world, southeastern Connecticut musicians, songwriters and the whole of the populace are taking part. The idea? To celebrate the sorcery of song and its cumulative uplifting effect on our combined spirit.
Wherever you are, you can walk outside — maybe you ARE outside — and probably see and hear someone playing music, whether it's in an established music club or hall or even a most unlikely place like a library, museum, school or retail establlishment. You can also simply access makemusicct.org for a complete list of the over 60 artists and nearly 50 venues participating in this excellent event.
So: do a few vocal exercises, run through a few scales, warm up by hitting all those notes in "Unchained Melody," and join the throngs! Or just go listen and smile.
