Musicians and Venues, due to Covid, we will not be holding matchmaking for 2020 so this login link isn’t working at this time. BUT, music will still be happening on June 21st, all over the world for Make Music Day. We would love to share your virtual concerts from all over the city with the hashtag #makemusicmadison.

Here are other projects in the works to celebrate Make Music Day together.

We miss you all, please stay safe, and check back here or on Facebook for updates.
