Now in its fifth year, Make Music New York, “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham” (Metro New York), is a unique festival of free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City, all on June 21st, the first day of summer. MMNY takes place simultaneously with similar festivities in more than 460 cities around the world — a global celebration of music making.
From 8 in the morning to 10 at night, public spaces throughout the five boroughs — sidewalks, parks, community gardens, and more — become impromptu musical stages, dance floors, and social meeting points. Thousands of amateur musicians, in every genre, perform on sidewalks for the biggest crowds of their lives. Professional musicians perform for new audiences, who come out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free. And everyone is invited to sing along and enjoy the first day of summer.
Among the over 1,000 concerts each year, MMNY includes a number of special projects: “Mass Appeal,” where hundreds of musicians band together to perform massive pieces written for a single type of instrument; “Punk Island” on Governors Island; music by the great Greek composer Iannis Xenakis in Central Park; and others, listed here.
Some 4,000 musicians performed in 2010. Along with concerts by individual musicians, dozens of New York cultural institutions took part — including Carnegie Hall, Central Park Summer Stage, City Winery, the Jazz Gallery, Joe’s Pub, River to River, and more.
