If you've ever dreamed of going on the road to follow a band but couldn't pick just one, today is the day your dreams come true. St. Louis celebrates its second Make Music Day with free concerts all over the city all day long. As just one possible itinerary, you could start in the Central West End at Straub's (302 North Kingshighway) with the standards and classical music of the Gateway Festival Orchestra, which will be performing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.. Trek on down to the National Blues Museum (615 Washington Avenue) for the jazz stylings of Sharon Hazel, who starts at 3 p.m. Hustle back to Grand Center by 7 p.m. for Raw Earth, which performs its take on Celtic and Middle Eastern music at 7 p.m. Almost 40 artists have signed on to perform; visit www.makemusicstl.org to see the full slate and to plan your day.
