Westlake Park also offers a Street Studio which invites onlookers to make a minute of music to be included in a mash-up song then shared nationally; and a live broadcast onwww.RainierAvenueRadio.World.


Additional events across greater Seattle include a Music Walk in Greenwood with nearly 20 venues, a children’s sing-a-long of “Give Peace a Chance” in Columbia City, and a parking lot jam at American Music in Fremont that is aiming to break a record.


Ballard, Woodland Park, Shoreline, and Bellevue are hosting music events ranging from performances at schools, libraries, and art galleries; to free guided music lessons; to playing fine pianos in a music hall.
