Join WXXI, Classical 91.5 host Brenda Tremblay, and the WXXI Music Stand as we participate in Make Music Day, a free celebration of music around the world.
Brenda and the music stand will be parked at Granite Mills at High Falls at 11 a.m. where she’ll perform a song or two and hope you’ll join her. You can sign up for a performance time slot at the Make Music Rochester website.
Throughout the day we’ll have an instrument making station, where kids and kids at heart can make an instrument out of recycled materials. And, at 12 p.m. Brenda and the music stand will break so that we can bring you our regularly scheduled Hochstein at High Falls concert series, featuring the Bossa Nova Bradley Brothers. After the concert we’ll bring back the WXXI Music Stand for more Make Music Day performances until 3 p.m. The music stand will then move to the Little Theatre for more performances in the evening throughout the East End.

Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now held on the same day in more than 800 cities in 120 countries. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.
