Make Music New York, the one-of-a-kind festival of music made by and for New Yorkers and held each June 21, will return for its 14th consecutive year despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis, organizers announced today. In response to the pandemic, Make Music New York has developed creative virtual and social distanced ways for anyone to join in the daylong musical free-for-all and flagship event of Make Music Day in the U.S., which is being held in over 85 cities and the entire states of Connecticut, Vermont, Wisconsin and Hawaii. Make Music New York will further showcase the power of music to inspire, uplift and connect people during these difficult times.
The modified 2020 music-making celebrations in the Big Apple will predominantly feature an extensive, engaging lineup of virtual online concerts, group performances and music lessons for all to enjoy. Make Music New York will also present a select series of live-from-home solo concerts in which music will ring forth from porches, stoops, balconies, yards, garages and windows across all five boroughs, all while adhering to social distance and public safety guidelines.
All Make Music New York events are free and open to the public. Participants who wish to perform may register at MakeMusicNY.org. A full schedule of events will be posted on the website in mid-June.
