Make Music Black Hills back in action

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City Arts Council has joined forces with the Allied Arts Fund to celebrate Make Music Black Hills, in conjunction with Make Music Day. A global event taking place in over 1,000 cities around the world.

Make Music Black Hills will be held in downtown Rapid City as a way to support performing arts during the summer solstice. The event encourages both amateur and professional music making, and will host a number of events. Including mini concerts, music lessons, craft tables and food trucks. It will all go towards celebrating music and the benefits making music brings to the community.

“We live in a very interesting place for public art, it’s something that we really value here,” said Dahl Arts Center and  RC Arts Council communications coordinator, Josie Weiland. “And one of the most important pieces of art, I think, is performing arts, and the Black Hills really values the performing arts as well. So, it’s a really special time, COVID’s on the decline, and we’re excited to have people come out here and celebrate music with us.”

Make Music Black Hills will be held on Monday, the 21st, at 713 Seventh Street from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event will be free and is open to the public.
