Free live music taking place across Milwaukee Tuesday as part of World Make Music Day
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- World Make Music Day took place across the Milwaukee area Tuesday, June 21.
World Make Music Day is celebrated in more than 1,000 cities. There are 40 performances taking place in the Milwaukee area in 25 different locations.
"I like to think that music is the universal language. It brings us together. It helps us connect," Lizzy Cichowski said.
Cichowski is the city organizer for Make Music Milwaukee. She said this is the sixth year Milwaukee is taking part.
"Make Music Milwaukee is part of Make Music Day, which is the international celebration of music. Takes place for free every year on June 21, the longest day of the year. It started 40 years ago in France," she said.
Musicians from all different types of genres played music for free. The Group Therapy Band played for multiple hours at Bayshore Town Center Tuesday.
"We just try to make everybody happy, for a few minutes anyway," Jean Klokie said. "We try to play stuff that somebody will enjoy, like the 50s, 60s."
Make Music Day is also celebrated statewide, so make sure to stop and take a listen. Musicians played until 10 p.m. Tuesday.
