Make Music Day is celebrated in 700 cities worldwide. Sound good?

Mark Bialczak

A whole bunch of people around the world will join together Sunday to admit that music has special powers.

The idea for a community fest to celebrate such a concept started in 1989 in France.

They picked June 21, the day of the Summer Solstice. Most sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere and all.

Now it’s spread to more than 700 cities worldwide. Thanks to the Syracuse-based Making Music magazine, we’ve got ours on deck this Sunday.

I wrote about it for this week’s installment of my Mark It Up community column for Syracuse Public Media site waer.org.
