Make Music Chicago

​​The International Music Foundation is proud to present Make Music Chicago. Every June 21st, Make Music Chicago brings together Chicagoans to celebrate their ability to make music, regardless of age, ability or preferred musical style. For the past 11 years, DePaul CMD has participated in this momentous event. 

Unlike a typical music festival, Make Music Chicago is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician—young and old, amateur and professional—takes to the streets, parks, plazas, and porches of Chicago to share music of all genres with friends, neighbors and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

DePaul CMD is currently looking for students who are interested in performing virtually for this event which will be shared on Facebook by Make Music Chicago. If you are interested in signing up for this event, please send an email to
