Winter solstice, we know it's hard competing with your brighter sibling summer, but the folks of Make Music New York, who put together the day-into-night free outdoor concerts in June, realize that the darkest of days are also cause for celebration. Over a dozen musical parades are planned, launching from locations like the High Line, BAM, Columbus Circle, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Union Square. Anyone can join in, and each parade has a different musical theme and leader. Tom Peyton is primed to conduct a symphony of bells, Patrick Grant leads a mobile electric guitar procession, and those with bicycles should head to Grand Army Plaza to be part of Merche Blasco's Blink. Riders of the G train can enjoy a tag-team string rendition of J.S. Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 in G major from the comfort of their subway car. Unsilent Night creator Phil Kline is also getting in on the act with a presentation of Peregrine, a participatory walking boombox piece. Check the site for the complete list of musical happenings.
