Community Music Day is coming back to the Cedar Rapids Public Library! The third annual Community Music Day will be held on Saturday, March 4. The full-day event is free of charge to all and includes performances from local musicians of all ages, an instrument petting zoo, a music production workshop, musical story time, arts and crafts, and more. Organized by Harmony School in partnership with the Cedar Rapids Public Library, Community Music Day is a celebration of all of the rich culture of music that eastern Iowa has to offer. “Community Music Day is a beloved tradition for us,” said Harmony School of Music director Jessica Altfillisch. “It’s about putting aside our differences and our worries for a day and just enjoying making music together. This year will be extra special because it is the first time we’ve been able to come together like this since the pandemic.” Traditional activities including infant and preschool music classes, musical storytime, student performances, crafts, and instrument petting zoos will be available. A new feature will be workshops on music production. In the afternoon, Harmony School students and teaching artists will invite all community members to join in a massive play and sing along. The day will end with a mainstage performance (artist announcement coming soon). Harmony School of Music was founded in 2017 to break down barriers to music education. They offer free intensive after school orchestra programs in a safe and loving environment to all students in grades 3-8. Community Music Day is part of Harmony School’s mission to support opportunities for students to be a positive force in their community.
