Mass Appeal, part of Make Music Day, brings together thousands of musicians - of all levels and ages - to make music in large, single-instrument groups. The following free events, open to all, will take place on June 21, 2021.
This very special performance of Grammy Award winning composer Eric Whitacre’s “Water Night” is open to all interested choralists. With lyrics inspired by the poetry of Octavio Paz, the piece, written for soprano, alto, tenor and bass, will be performed from free canoes provided by the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse as the musical flotilla makes its way up Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal. The procession will begin at the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse.
To listen from the shore, no reservations required, the best shoreline seating is available between Carroll Street and 2nd St. Restrooms are available at the Whole Foods parking lot at 3rd St., which also has an esplanade with limited seating.
