The one and only fundraising campaign for Make Music Upper Perk this year ends at midnight tonight, Friday, March 31, 2017. Could you hold a 14 hour, 12 venue, free to public music festival for under $2000? Make Music Upper Perk has done it since 2013. Run and funded entirely by volunteers – donate today to keep the music playing in 2017!
Money raised from our supporters allows us to print flyers and save the date cards, as well as print programs and maps to be distributed at the local library, senior center, and other places around town, and to print our program in the local newspaper. We’d like to get some yard signs so we can expand the area covered and continue to spread the word about the event, and grow our audiences.
More money also means we can continue to grow and to be as environmentally conscious and friendly as we can while doing so. More money means we can find more ways to celebrate music and musicians in the Upper Perkiomen Valley, and to share that celebration with people of all ages and musical tastes.
In 2013, a small group of volunteers put together the first ever Make Music Upper Perk; a one day celebration of the role of music in our lives – all free and open to the public. By 2016, Make Music Upper Perk (MMUP) had grown from 100 musicians at seven public spaces to nearly 200 musicians, ranging in age from 6 years old to 80, performing in fourteen public spaces (inside and outside).
Join us today in supporting the 5th annual day-long celebration of music in the Upper Perkiomen Valley, in upper Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
