Closing Bell: Make Music New York Comes to Flatbush Avenue This Weekend

by

The winter edition of citywide music festival Make Music New York is bringing participatory performances to Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Heights, Cadman Plaza, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and McCarren Park this Sunday. Appalachian fiddlers and dancers will lead a parade from Grand Army Plaza to the Shake Shack on Flatbush Avenue, and in Williamsburg, a parade of kalimba (thumb piano) players will wend its way from Cooper Park to McCarren Park.

And singers and instrumentalists of all levels can meet in Cadman Plaza to play in a “slow-motion” performance of the prelude to Bach’s G-Major Cello Suite No. 1. Down on Williamsburg’s Southside, community groups El Puente and Bombayo are hosting an Afro-Caribbean dance and performance experience at El Puente’s headquarters on South 4th Street. Check out the full schedule over at Make Music New York.
