On Thursday, June 21st, the JCC in Sherman is taking part in the world wide Make Music Event. Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 800 cities in 120 countries. Make Music is Completely different from a typical music festival, it is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers.
The JCC in Sherman has been a gathering place for the local communities in the Candlewood Lake area and nearby New York towns since 1994. The mission of the JCCS is to provide high quality educational, cultural, and social programs to Sherman, CT and the surrounding communities serving all people irrespective of age, race, or religion.
