Make Music Winter to Expand Nationwide this December 21including Crystal Lake
Make Music Winter, a free, outdoor music-making celebration on the winter solstice, expands nationwide this year on Friday, Dec. 21 with joyful and dynamic participatory musical events and parades representing a variety of styles taking place in over 20 U.S. cities. The all-day musical celebration on the shortest day of the year brings together people of all ages, musical abilities and genres to sing, play, march and dance their way across streets, parks, plazas, and other public spaces. Make Music Winter, which launched eight years ago in New York City, is the cold-weather counterpart to Make Music Day, the annual global celebration of music occurring each June 21, the summer solstice.
In addition to the flagship event in New York City, where 12 participatory musical parades will be held across the five boroughs, Make Music Winter celebrations will take place in Charleston (SC), Chattanooga (TN), Crystal Lake (IL), Fort Lauderdale (FL), Groton (CT), Hartford (CT), Lockport (NY), Long Beach (CA), Los Angeles (CA), Meridian (ID), Montclair (NJ), Nashville (TN), New Haven (CT), Ossining (NY), Pahokee (FL), Pittsburgh (PA), Provo (UT), Roosevelt (UT), Salem (OR), San Diego (CA), Southlake (TX), Springfield (PA) and Willimantic (CT).
