Make Music Winter

The Make Music Alliance is proud to introduce a new annual celebration: Make Music Winter!

Like Make Music Day on June 21, Make Music Winter is a free, outdoor, participatory event that turns audiences into music makers. Since 2011, it has been organized in New York City each December 21 – the shortest day of the year – with twelve musical parades around the city in a variety of genres, open for all to join.

In 2017, Make Music Winter expanded beyond New York NY to three pilot cities (Montclair NJ, Muskogee OK, and Ossining NY). On December 21, 2018 it will launch on a national scale.

To learn more, follow the links for the 2017 schedule, press coverage, photosvideos, and toolkits.
