NEW YORK (AP) — More than 50 U.S. cities will be hosting Make Music Day, a free one-day outdoor festival celebrating music and music-making.

The annual event is June 21, the summer solstice.

Highlights of Make Music Day in the U.S. will include Sousapaloozas in Chicago, Cleveland, Madison, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York and San Jose.

There will also more than 150 Mass Appeals across the country gathering musicians to play together in single-instruments groups. Featured instruments will include guitars, harmonicas, accordions, trombones, bassoons, French horns, synthesizers, ukuleles, djembes, harps and voices.

Street Studios in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York and Philadelphia will give passers-by a chance to collaborate in producing original music.

The festival began in France in 1982 and has since spread to 750 cities across 120 countries.
