Make Music Day is an international movement which brings free, community-wide, musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide. Every year, the celebration is held on June 21, the summer solstice, in more than 800 communities around the world. Make Music Day events are organized with, for, and by the community.
In Woodbridge, the Economic Development Commission is inviting businesses to host free, informal concerts in the early evening. There will also be art shows, wine tastings and other events happening simultaneously. More details will be available closer to the date.
Currently, Coachman Square, Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge and The Shops at 245 Amity Road are scheduled to host concerts that evening. 10Selden (formerly the Teen Center) is helping to find local musicians to perform at the venues.
“I’m excited and very pleased that our Economic Development Commission is taking advantage of this international movement, which is a wonderful oppportunity to attract more foot traffic and customers to the business district, and to provide free family fun for our residents at the same time,” said First Selectman Beth Heller.
“Our business district hosts high-quality specialty shops, terrific services and great restaurants,” said EDC Chair Robert Sharrer. “The EDC hopes these free concerts will lead more residents and area employees to discover what’s here and to shop, dine, try Woodbridge!”
Local businesses or vendors interested in hosting or participating may contact Betsy Yagla at 203-389-3403 or email@example.com.
All concerts in Greater New Haven will be publicized by Make Music New Haven and the Town of Woodbridge will promote those in Woodbridge.
