Be part of Make Music Madison, an annual, citywide, outdoor day of music held on the summer solstice. Drop by to make your own music at a public piano in the Alumni Park central green between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Then, at 1:15 p.m., head over to the park’s outdoor classroom where UW alumna and world-renowned opera singer Prenicia Clifton ’04 presents a musical experience from around the globe. Prenicia believes that her successes can be attributed to mentors investing in her passion for music as a youth. In tribute to her mentors, Prenicia will be joined in concert by young aspiring artists Airin Beals, Lexus Carter and performers from the UW Madison Summer Music Clinic. Round out your afternoon with a performance by the Vince Sweeney Band at 3:15 p.m. Sweeney, a 1978 alumnus, and his band will play folk, rock, and country hits in the outdoor classroom.

Enjoy this afternoon of celebratory performance through song. This is a family-friendly event; Badgers of all ages are welcome to attend the performance.
