The Song Goes On: Making Music in Salem

The Willamette Heritage Center brings a special exhibit looking at the history of making live music in our community.

What do an 1875 upright piano, a child’s band uniform and a concert flyer for Little Richard all have in common? They are rarely displayed artifacts that will be on display documenting the rich and long tradition of making music in our city.

The Song Goes On: Making Music in Salem can be enjoyed from June 3 till September 30 at the Willamette Heritage Center, 1313 Mill St SE, Salem, OR 97301.

The exhibit was inspired by and will coincide with the city-wide national Make Music Day event: Make Music Salem, slated for June 21, 2022.
