Make Music New York– the free outdoor music event that turns city streets into stages– is calling for proposals for this year’s winter festival:
For Make Music Winter 2013, artists are invited to submit proposals for a new, sonic, public art work – “a musical parade” – that allows for a variable number of musicians and non-musicians alike to participate without prior rehearsal. The work should be suitable for participants moving outside, through New York City streets in December. We are particularly interested in proposals that complement or depart from previous parades.
Three music parades came through Brooklyn during Make Music Winter 2013 (full list here), including performances through the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, on the G train, and in front of BAM. This year’s winner will have access to a $500 budget for parade materials, as well as MMNY’s promotion and planning resources.
The event will be held on Saturday, December 21; the proposal deadline is Tuesday, October 1. More information and proposal guidelines available here.
