Make Music Milwaukee celebrates Make Music Winter with Bell by Bell!

Wednesday December 21, 2022 - 5:00pm

Meet at Brass Bell Music Store

Make Music Milwaukee is celebrating Make Music Winter on December 21st! Like Make Music Day on June 21st, Make Music Winter is a free, outdoor, participatory musical event that turns audiences into music makers. This year in Milwaukee we will be featuring special musical project, "Bell by Bell". Bell by Bell is fun and interactive for all ages and musical levels. Participants are given a colored bell and event leaders are given colored boomwhackers, with each color representing one note. When a red boomwhacker goes up the red bell is rung, same with blue, white, green and so on. Then when all the colors and parts are lined up together, it will create a song! Together we will walk to various stops to perform a handful of these musical numbers, spreading music to our community and neighborhood!

This event is free and open to all! To register, please fill out this quick form by December 18th.

WMEA Virtual Advocacy Drive-In

February 7 - 9, 2023


Every February since 2017, the WMEA Advocacy Committee has hosted the Wisconsin Drive-In Day. At this annual event, participants meet with Wisconsin legislators to advocate for a specific ASK regarding music education. The ASKs are written and distributed shortly before the Drive-In date to ensure the issue is topical and timely.

The WMEA Advocacy Committee requests strong participation at each Wisconsin Drive-In Day.

The goal is to field WMEA representatives from all districts in which state legislators serve on the WI Committees on Education. In the past, the WMEA Drive-In Day has resulted in significant support for music education from our legislators - it is a valuable endeavor to take part in.

Please plan ahead to join us virtually via Zoom in 2023 - we need your voice at this important event!

What is Make Music Day?

Make Music Day is a NAMM Foundation sponsored celebration of music to be enjoyed by everyone, for free, on the longest day of the year in over 1,000 cities across the globe. Performances and activities are led by artists of all ages and talent levels, in places like coffeehouses, sidewalks, museums, parks, or wherever they can find to be musical! The goal of this day is to celebrate the joy of making music & expose people to new styles of music and neighborhoods in their community that they wouldn’t ordinarily experience otherwise. The more creative and fun, the better! In the past, participants got to play all over the Greater Milwaukee area at places like Sheridan Park, Hal Leonard, the Mitchell Domes, The Plaza at Fiserv Forum, Lakefront Brewery and more!
