Alfred Music joined the National Music Day and Make Music LA celebration with public performances in Palisades Park on Friday, June 21, 2013. National Music Day is a one-day event where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music, and other musical events take place in the streets, parks, businesses and anywhere else people feel like playing or listening to music. Musical festivities occurred on the longest day of the year in more than 514 cities around the world – a global celebration of music making inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique. The day brought communities together in celebration of making music and its many benefits.
Alfred Music joined the global music celebration by attending the Make Music LA event in Palisades Park near the Santa Monica Pier. Make Music LA is an eleven-hour celebration, which took place on the summer solstice, Friday June 21, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The day kicked off with “The 100 Hohner Harmonica Project,” where attendees could participate in a community lesson and performance led by Tom Nolan.Following this event, Alfred Music gave away copies of Alfred’s Teach Yourself to Play Harmonica.
In addition to contributing free products to “The 100 Hohner Harmonica Project,” Alfred Music donated over $1,000 worth of free music products throughout day. A variety of music products were chosen for this event that would appeal to a wide audience. Attendants were encouraged to stop by the Alfred Music table and choose one piece of music per person at no cost.
“This type of community event aligns perfectly with Alfred Music’s core mission to encourage people to learn, teach, and play music of all genres and ability,” said Alfred Music CEO, Ron Manus. “We chose music products that will appeal to both the beginner and professional musician, encouraging the discovery of new music those individuals may not otherwise have received exposure to within their daily lives.”
