Organizers say they hope more community members get involved in creative ways in the years to come. “Whether it’s something formal, or the city, or you’re just sitting in your back yard. Whatever your level, we want you to be inspired to make music, ”said Alex Paramo of Mariposa Music.

“We used to have gigs too, one in the city park, where people made flowerpots and played music on them, and in senior centers we did some window serenades for our seniors,” said Hakim Bellamy from the city’s arts and culture department.

The city has partnered with local company Mariposa Music and the American Federation of Musicians to organize live music at venues across the city.
