Make Music Cincinnati 2021 promises music, celebration

June 21, the summer solstice, is the longest day of the year. Make Music Cincinnati plans to make it the noisiest, too. 

Hayley and Brandon Voorhees brought Make Music Day — an international musical celebration observed in cities across the U.S., France, Italy, Argentina, China and more — to the Queen City in 2017. 

The first year was small, with one venue and only a few musical groups. The second year was curbed by rainy weather. In 2020, COVID-19 forced the event to go virtual. But in 2021, all signs point to success, Hayley Voorhees said. 

Make Music Cincinnati co-founders, Hayley and Brandon Voorhees (pictured with their daughter), started the free summer music celebration as a way to support music education and musical activities by making music accessible to all people in Cincinnati.

There are nearly 30 venues planning to host the event throughout the city on Monday. 

Ault Park will kickstart the day at 10 a.m., and will run until 10 p.m. Several other parks and venues, including Hyde Park Square, Sawyer Point Ampitheater and The Wyoming Fine Arts Center, will host performances throughout the day and night. Downtown, there will be interactive stations with instruments like steel drums and ukuleles available for anyone to play. There may even be a karaoke stage.
