Make Music New York, described by city officials as “one of the largest musical events in the city’s history,” is back for a fourth year of free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City, all on the first day of summer.
This year, for the first time, there will be nine stages of music in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. All performances are free and outdoors.
SCHEDULE – ALL PERFORMANCES BELOW ARE IN DUMBO, BROOKLYN
“Make Music New York is a great example of why New York City is one of the world’s cultural capitals,” says Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “With performances ranging from beginning musicians to world-class ensembles, Make Music New York gives residents and visitors a chance to experience the City’s diverse musical riches in their own backyards or explore the sights and sounds of other neighborhoods.” As always, MMNY takes place simultaneously with similar festivities in more than 300 cities around the world, all based on France’s Fête de la Musique. Further details can be found at www.makemusicny.org.
Major support for Make Music New York 2010 is provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. Media partners include Metro New York, Time Out New York, and WNYC.
Last year, on the summer solstice, Make Music New York organized one of the biggest musical events in the city’s history: 900 free outdoor concerts in an incredible array of genres and locations. Thousands of musicians — from opera singers to underground MC’s, Tuvan throat singers to high school bands — entertained New Yorkers on sidewalks, streets, parks, and gardens throughout all five boroughs of NYC in “an eleven-hour escapade of musical creativity” (New Yorker).
Make Music New York returns on Monday, June 21, 2010. It’s going to be even bigger and better, and we want you to have first dibs on great spaces!
For the fourth annual event, Time Out New York magazine has launched a website to match musicians with locations. Now anyone can find a space for their music… or music for their space. Sign up today, and MMNY will put you in touch with other musicians and locations, coordinate your concert with others in the neighborhood, secure all necessary permits, and promote your event with free posters, a new interactive website, and media partners Time Out New York, Metro New York, and WNYC.
