The organizers of Make Music NYC have been known for fete-ing the first day of summer with a smorgasborg of live music in public places for the past six years, but they’re adding to their repetoire this year with Make Music Winter on Wednesday, December 21st.
With 12 different musical parades, Make Music Winter is taking over all corners of the city, hitting up the boroughs, and even planning a musical sojourn on the F train to Coney Island. You can check their site for a list of the parades – the options range from bell-ringing to Egyptian sing-alongs to an electric guitar walk – and find out what materials you’ll need to bring. If you show up early to your chosen parade, though, you’ll be able to take advantage of the instruments or sheet music that they’ll provide. Make Music Winter has planned parades at varying times throughout the day so that you can work around any other obligations you may have, so pick your route, put on your walking shoes, and getting ready to make some noise.
