Make Music Plymouth held on June 21

PLYMOUTH — The New Hampshire Music Festival is pleased to announce the first ever Make Music Plymouth event, taking place on Saturday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in locations throughout downtown Plymouth. This open-access music festival is free to attend and invites musicians of all ages, genres and experience levels to participate.

This inaugural event is a branch of the popular Fête de la Musique, an international day of celebration that takes place in over 730 cities across the world on June 21 every year. Conceived in France in 1981 by the Director of Music and Dance at the time, Maurice Fleuret, the festival was created to provide an outlet for aspiring musicians who would not have places to perform otherwise. The first festival took place on June 21, 1982, and has quickly grown to include 108 countries on six continents with more to be announced in 2014.

The organizer of the event, Robin Lee of North Hampton, New Hampshire, originally learned about the event while living in France in 2010. After moving back to New Hampshire in 2012, she founded the Portland, Maine branch last year.

"Fête de la Musique is unique in that it is not just taking place in the community, but is made by the community itself. The venues are lawns, sidewalks and tents and the musicians are students, professionals and local artists. It is inclusive rather than exclusive," Lee stated of the grassroots organization.

This year, the global festival has found a new home in New Hampshire with Make Music Plymouth. "This is an amazing opportunity for us to be involved with an event that encompasses everything we are striving for: people of all backgrounds coming together to share their passion for music with the community," said Deborah Leonard Kosits, executive director of the New Hampshire Music Festival, the presenter of the event. "This is a celebration of the diversity of music and of the depth of talent within our local cities and towns. We hope that people from all over New England will come to perform, attend and volunteer. We're grateful for the support and active involvement from PSU and the business community."

The cornerstones of Make Music Plymouth are collaboration, celebration, and education and finding unique ways to promote these principles during the daylong event, such as "mass appeal" gatherings, community sing-a-longs and instrument "petting zoos."
