And it's all part of a global celebration of music-making happening in over 1,000 cities inspired by France’s te de la Musique.


“We are excited to introduce Make Music Day to the singers, musicians, and residents of Tyler! It is a beautiful opportunity to make our city sound as beautiful as it looks by filling our streets, parks, shops, and sidewalks with the joyful sounds of music. As an official Texas Music Friendly community, our participation in Make Music Day is an exciting opportunity to showcase the hundreds, even thousands, of talented singers and musicians that call Tyler home.
