Explore the city musically on the longest day of the year
We love Make Music New York. On the longest day of the year, there's almost nothing we'd rather do than explore our city musically, checking out (or participating in) one of hundreds of free concerts and spectacles. Highlights for us this year include the Mungo Thompson Cricket Orchestra that brings the sounds of crickets to the High Line using violins, flutes and percussion; a Beck Song Reader Stage at Joe's Pub where you can sing the songs from Beck's sheet music album backed by house bands Balthrop, Alabama and Mother Falcon; the Silent Barn and Warper Block Party in Bushwick; mass concerts starring everything from transformers at the ConEd power station to ukuleles and circuit benders; and a bluegrass extravaganza presented by the City Reliquary in Williamsburg. BYO instrument, and get involved!
