Event Description:

Make Music Winter, first launched in 2011, is a free, outdoor musical celebration each December 21st that turns audiences into music makers. With a diverse array of talent and themes, Make Music Winter transforms New York’s cityscape with over one dozen participatory musical parades on the winter solstice. On this special day, music can pop up anywhere. Rounding the corner, you may see a herd of electric guitarists, a choir of medieval singers, or a percussive Puerto Rican parranda coming down the street. Ingenious musical parades for iPhones, hand bells, kalimbas, marching bands, and ukuleles have delighted audiences eight consecutive seasons. Whatever your wintertime musical dreams, anything is possible. And all of it is free, joyful, and profoundly participatory.
