Downtown York will be rocking out Jan. 7 thanks to a free music making event.

The Miller Music Festival, which is open to all ages, will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with live performances from students and professionals alike. 

The Cultural Alliance of York County will be hosting a Make Music Day on Tuesday throughout York County.

The Appell Center for the Performing Arts will have festival auditions, performances by Public Disco Porch and all-day musical storytime. 

Other sites for the festival are MarketView Arts, Heidelberg United Church of Christ, St. John Episcopal Church, Creative York and Central Market House. They will have an instrument “petting zoo,” a pipe organ “crawl,” singing with the York County Honors Choirs and more. 

The event is sponsored by the York Music Teachers Association and is designed to promote young, local talents and encourage continuing music education.
