Make Music Day: Global Website

Make Music Day is a global event ocuring on the summer and winter solstices. The Chattanooga chapter began in 2016 led by local Taryn Balwinski, and Mark joined the volunteer team in 2017. Mark’s first project was Music on the Move, an event designed to take artists to the streets with designated stops along a route. Mark now leads and teaches the Harmonica Workshop, which is sponsored by Hohner Harmonicas.

Chattanooga Readers and Writers Fair
