From the studios on Sabine Street to the gazebo at Marmion Park in the Heights, there are a number of local gathering places where Houstonians can see live music as part of Make Music Day in Houston on June 21.

The event, part of a worldwide celebration, takes place every year on the summer solstice as a way to demonstrate the power of music to unite and build community. Performances run the gamut from jam sessions to music lessons to performances from professional artists and groups, all of which are free to the public.

“The city of Houston is delighted to once again be part of the international roster for Make Music Day,” Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said in a statement. “I am once again inviting all Houstonians, of all musical abilities, to join us and bring music to our neighborhoods, offices, and communities on this celebratory day of music.”
