Talking Heads’ Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth will participate their first public musical event since before the start of the global pandemic later this month. The musical couple, who also lead Tom Tom Club, will participate in Make Music Day’s global This Moment in Time offeringon Monday, June 21. Their appearance will take place in their hometown of Fairfield, CT, in the town center’s gazebo, at 12pm.
Make Music Day is an annual global celebration of music timed with the summer solstice. A note from the event’s organizers reads:
“To remember and honor the lives lost to COVID, Make Music Day will present a musical memorial, This Moment in Time, a series of gong performances nationwide and globally. At noon local time, a noted musician will play on a large gong for one straight hour, marking the year of incalculable loss, but also ushering in a new era. The performances will be live streamed to MakeMusicDay.org. Afterwards, in many locations, the public will be invited to play the gongs. This Moment in Time observances will take place in Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and 15 U.S. cities, with more locations to be announced.”
Frantz released his autobiography, Remain in Love, last year.
