The streets of Astoria will come alive this afternoon with the sound of music, courtesy of Make Music Winter, a city-wide celebration of outdoor music. Much like its summer counterpart, Make Music New York, today’s festivities will bring us pop-up concerts all over the five boroughs, from the Bronx to Williamsburg.

Starting at 3pm, keep and eye (and ear!) out for a musical parade around 30th Ave, converging at Athens Square Park for a grand finale.  From the official press release:

“Composer Ravi Kittappa and pianist Karl Larson invite the public to perform the New York premiere of Decantations III, Kittappa’s piece featuring the sound of sruti boxes (easily playable Indian drone instruments). Beginning at 3:00 pm, performers split into three groups and walk divergent paths around Astoria, playing a variety of sustaining instruments and electronic devices, while interacting with the sounds of the neighborhood. After 30 minutes everyone converges in Athens Square Park to create a large and varying drone resolving to a finish.”

 

If you’re around the neighborhood this afternoon, enjoy the free music! For more information, check out Make Music Winter’s official website.
