Who’s Organizing This?
The Montclair Make Music Day Committee is a Committee of Indie Arts Montclair, and is made up of volunteers, musicians, non-profits, small business owners, and students. The first Montclair Make Music Day took place in 2014 and was successful because the community embraced it and organizations like Terry’s Serendipity Café and the 73 See Gallery provided volunteers and support. Starting in 2018, Montclair Make Music Day became a project of Indie Arts Montclair.
