Zildjian, makers of high quality cymbals since the 17th Century, are returning Make Music partners in 2016.

In Boston, Chicago, Madison, Nashville, and New York, dozens of performers will premiere Shimmer, a new 45-minute work by Zildjian artist Brian Chase of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, scored for 16 (or more) cymbals, arranged in a circle. (Chase will lead the New York performance at Madison Square Park.)

In addition, Make Music Boston and Make Music Nashville will reprise their popular “Cymbal Jungles,” inviting children to explore the sounds of cymbals through a series of guided activities, teasing out new ways of thinking about sound and performance. Zildjian is graciously supplying the cymbals at each location.
