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.
To get started, just go to www.timeoutnewyork.com/makemusic. There is no charge to take part — everything is completely free.
Last year’s festival drew tens of thousands of listeners and international media coverage. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with New Yorkers from all walks of life.
All concert arrangements must be finalized by April 21st. For more information, visit www.makemusicny.org.
