We are excited to make music in the safest way possible this year during Make Music Day Summer. It is important that all host venues and musicians follow our strict safety guidlines including masks on EVERYONE. Yes, we would like all musicians to be masked while performing and to maintain 6 foot distance from other musicians at all times. Additionally, singers should place themselves 12 ft from other members of the band and the band should be as far away from the audience as possible, keeping a distance of at least 24 ft. ALL performances must be outside, there are to be no Make Music Day Ossining Briarcliff Performances inside this year. Please have an area with hand sanitizer and extra masks for anyone who might need it. Also, audience must be kept to a minimum. We are encouraging all musicians and host venues to designate a person who will ensure that all these protocols are followed. Additionally, we are encouraging both musicians and host venues to live stream their music and we will share it on the Make Music Day page. We are also asking that all musicians send us a one minute video of their performance to be included on wrap up video of the day. All musicians and hosts should fill out the form below so we have all contact info and social media tags.
