Make Music New York knows how to make some noise. Now in its sixth year, this open-air music festival sponsors hundreds of free performances in unexpected places around the city. From 10am until 10pm on Thursday, June 21st Make Music New York will reverberate in city parks and echo down avenues. To be sure you don’t miss the music, we’ve compiled some happenings in and around the Village.
At First Presbyterian Church (12 W. 12th St.) from 4pm-6pm Showstoppers, a senior song group, will bring radio-ready pop hits to the stage. In their words: “You’re as young as you feel.”
Stay at Gizzi’s (16 W. 8th St.) all day. Starting at 1pm a string of artists specializing in the blues, pop, jazz, folk, and more will cycle through and show off their musical talent. Make the most of their delicious food and invigorating drinks while waiting for the next great act to start.
“Mass Appeal: Clarinets” will feature a choir of clarinets right near the Washington Square Arch at the southern end of Fifth Avenue. The classical covers start at 5:45pm and ring out until 7:15pm.
