Covid may keep us 6 feet apart, but I believe music can bring us close together. Music is universal. It exists in every human culture; it is full of harmony and can bring inner peace and uplift our spirits.
This Sunday June 21st is not only Father’s Day, it is Make Music Day. It is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion, will pour onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public. It is held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries, including Make Music Stamford Downtown, in places with plenty of space for social distancing.
Be sure to wear a mask, and as the musicians play in sync, go ahead and participate by dancing, tapping your feet, clapping your hands and singing along….together!
