Hundreds of musicians will fill the streets of New York with songs on Friday as part of the Make Music festival.
There are about 46 performances on the Upper West Side, sprinkled throughout the neighborhood and throughout the day.
This 5 p.m. concert sounds particularly cool, on the lake in Central Park:
“At 5:00pm, 144 singers will set off in rowboats and sing Schafer’s 50-minute choral work Credo (1976) from a circular configuration on the Central Park Lake, conducted by George Steel. Credo, written for twelve separate, coordinated choirs, is musically inspired by Thomas Tallis’s motet Spem in alium, with text based on the writings of 16th-century Italian astronomer Giordano Bruno describing the universe as it was then understood.”
