After a long year, it’s time to find harmony and make music together. That is exactly what will happen on June 21, when the city of Beverly Hills takes part in “Make Music Day” 2021. “Make Music Day” is a free celebration of music around the world. Launched in 1982 in France as the “Fete de la Musique,” it now attracts participants of all skill levels in more than 1000 cities in 120 different countries.
The City of Beverly Hills will make its debut as a new member of “Make Music Day,” by hosting a number of activities:
Drum Circle at Roxbury Park 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.
Alan Bruni & The Drum Circle Facilitators Guild will facilitate the program and anyone can come and go and play as they please during this time. Some instruments will be provided and the public is invited to bring their own. A limited number of free drumsticks will be given out at Roxbury Park from 10 -11 a.m.
Pianist at Beverly Gardens Park 3-6 p.m.
A sing-along, play-along free flow piano event invites people to gather and sing/play-along. The public is invited to bring their own instruments as well as their voices!
Live-stream concert with singer-songwriter Bill Rotella 6-7 p.m.
