A Response to COVID-19

An Important Update on Make Music Portland 2020

Dear Make Music Portlanders,

After much deliberation and in following suit with cities around the world, due to the COVID-19 health situation, we are disappointed to announce that we will not be moving forward with the traditional outside Make Music Day events on Sunday, June 21st. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy, so instead, we will come together virtually to celebrate music, our community, and our state. While the majority of our performances normally take place in Portland, being completely virtual this year will allow us to expand our reach beyond the city lines, and connect with musicians across the state of Maine.

We are working with the national Make Music Alliance and cities across the country to finalize what a virtual Make Music Portland will look like, and will have more details in the coming days. Our hope is to transition the majority of what typically takes place during Make Music Portland and bring it to you virtually; play-a-long events, music lessons, individual performances, and even shower singing. There are many ideas in development, but if you have any suggestions, ideas or interest in putting something together please email us.

Should the current health situation change drastically over the next few weeks, we are putting plans in place to be able to transition back outside.

Stay tuned for another update in the coming days. In the meantime, stay safe, healthy and happy, and thank you for sharing your music with us.
