Info

The Butler-McCook House & Garden is the South Downtown Neighborhood Music Hub for the 2nd annual Make Music Hartford celebration with live performances by local artists! Make Music Day is part of the international FĂȘte de la Musique, taking place in 1,000 cities across 120 countries. On our longest day of the year, this musical free-for-all celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts. Make Music Hartford is a program of the Greater Hartford Arts Council as part of their mission to inspire all people to participate and invest in the arts.
 
Bring a picnic lunch and your dancing shoes to enjoy a day of arts and culture in the Butler-McCook Garden, beginning with a piano performance at 11 a.m. by students from the Studio of Sharon B. Girard, followed by performances by Twice Around, the Peter Greenfogel Quintet, The Aquatudes, and Ashley Hamel. Interested in how other cities are celebrating Make Music Day? A feed of world-wide performances will be streaming in our Amos Bull Community Room.  Join artist Catherine M. Elliott in our historic garden for a plein air painting demonstration and view her exhibition in the Amos Bull House. One of Make Music Day Hartford's Spotlight Events, a ukulele circle led by Howie Theriault will close out the evening.
 
Take a tour of the Butler-McCook House from 1 to 4 p.m., and see the South Parlor where the Butler-McCook family gathered to play music on Main Street for four generations. Step inside the Butler-McCook Aetna Gallery to view an exhibit by artist Diana Lyn Coté throughout the day as well.
