We invite ALL MUSICIANS to come play, listen and enjoy! Spicer’s Music started the first-ever Make Music Day celebration in Auburn in 2016. Held annually on the first day of summer, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 700 cities across 120 countries. The daylong, musical free-for-all celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts. This year, more than 35 U.S. cities are organizing Make Music celebrations, encompassing thousands of concerts nationwide. Make Music Day is presented by the NAMM Foundation, and coordinated by the Make Music Alliance. The first day of summer is the perfect day to stop in to a local music store for some gear or to go out and play–whether it’s for the first time or the thousandth. Music has been shown to strengthen social connectivity, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, stimulate memory, and is integral to a well-rounded, enjoyable life. By participating in Make Music Day, Spicer’s Music and the Auburn-Opelika community encourage every form of music making.
