Make Music New York
June 21, 2015
Once again, Dag Hammarkjold Plaza is a selected performance site of Make Music New York, held on June 21. Now in its ninth year, this unique festival offers 1,000+ free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City on the first day of summer. MMNY takes place simultaneously with similar festivities in more than 726 cities around the world – a global celebration of music making.
Completely different from a typical music festival, MMNY is open to anyone who wants to take part. There’s still time to sign up if you’re a musician. Just go to the MMNY website.
From 10 in the morning to 10 at night, musicians of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions – from hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock – perform on streets, sidewalks, stoops, plazas, cemeteries, parks and gardens. From high school bands to marquee names, MMNY is open to anyone who wants to take part, enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend.
