Pete and Toshi Seeger celebrated in Lincoln Center concert at #SalemOR Public Library – June 24th

Lincoln Center On Screen:
A Memorial Concert for
Pete and Toshi Seeger
2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24
Loucks Auditorium

Pete and Toshi Seeger’s legacies run deep, from transforming the way we listen to the music of our American roots to demanding social justice and successfully advocating for grassroots environmental change. Filmed in 2014, and organized by their grandson Kitama Cahill-Jackson, this screening includes an all-star line-up of family and friends who gather to remember these leaders in folk music and activism. Performers include Peter Yarrow, Holly Near, the Chapin Sisters, and more.

Lincoln Center On Screen partners with libraries, schools and community service organizations to bring free screenings of world-class performances to neighborhoods across the country in efforts to broaden access to the arts for those who experience barriers to arts participation. Major support for Lincoln Center On Screen is provided by the Oak Foundation. This program is free and open to the public.

Make Music Day #SalemOR – June 21st

Artists Listing

Make Music Day Salem is an event for people who love music and the joyous sense of community that music can foster.

It will be held at numerous locations in Salem every June 21 (the summer solstice).

Make Music Day Salem is a call to participation: Music by the People, For the People. It is an invitation to all musicians, amateur as well as professional, to sign up to play at one of the available venues and, after practicing up for the big event, to perform on June 21.  And it is an invitation to music-lovers to show up at the venues and enjoy the musical offerings.

Make Music Day Salem is a celebration of music of all genres played by and enjoyed by people of all stripes.  We plan to have music from Alternative to Bluegrass to Classical to Zydeco.  And we hope to have a large turnout from the whole community, celebrating together our shared love of live music.

We will be joining over 725 cities around the world to celebrate Make Music Day – so help us make this day unforgettable as we kick off summer with music for all to enjoy!

Make Music Day Salem is an outgrowth of the Fete de la Musique, which originated in France in 1982.  The event began as a call to musicians in Paris to get out in the streets on June 21 and play their music.  It has since spread and has a large footprint, particularly in Europe and parts of Africa, but also in a handful of cities getting started in the U.S.  We think this is a great way to showcase our city and the many talented and amazing people that make Salem special.
