Winter Is Coming!

After years of spontaneous musical merriment on June 21, we are thrilled to bring the spirit of Make Music Day to December 21, the winter solstice.

For Make Music Winter, 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, bicycles, trombones, and boomboxes have delighted audiences since New York City began celebrating Make Music Winter in 2011.

Whatever your wintertime musical dreams, anything is possible. And all of it is free, joyful, and profoundly participatory.

Check out our new Make Music Winter section for the full details, and learn how to create your own mobile, participatory Make Music Winter event!
