June 21 is Make Music Day over 750 cities in 120 countries across the world - a day of performances in celebration of music in all its forms. In Vermont, state parks will host live music, free to the public. Make Music VT is the first statewide festival participant since Make Music Day was established as Fête de la Musique’ in France in 1982. Our state parks have been an ally in bringing it to Vermonters across the state. Music in Vermont’s state parks is coordinated by volunteers — people with friendly ties to musicians who might welcome the opportunity to simply play, to share, on this special day that unifies a love for music across the globe. Some state parks already have music coordinators preparing performances on June 21, and several opportunities remain open to new volunteer programmers. Grand Isle State Park and Kingsland Bay State Park have music stewards bringing artists together already. Other state parks welcome curation of music on June 21 and volunteer programmers/site hosts are needed: Bomoseen, close to Rutland; Boulder Beach in the Groton Forest area; Jamaica and Camp Plymouth, in southern VT; Elmore in northern VT; and Emerald Lake in the town of Dorset. If you’d like to bring musicians to a state park on June 21, gathering the resources that would make a performance possible, please email the Make Music VT crew at Big Heavy World, for more info and see
