Dozens of local amateur and professional musicians will perform publicly on Wednesday as part of Make Music Day in Huntsville. These performances will be spread throughout the city, at public venues and private businesses.

“Make Music Day is about inclusivity, which is key to building a successful music ecosystem. No matter what kind of music you make, there’s a stage for you.”

Matt Mandrella, Huntsville Music Officer
