Make Music Winter: December 21, 2016

Bell by Bell | Tom Peyton 

Artist Tom Peyton distributes seventy color-coded bells to the crowd, one color per note. A team of conductors waves corresponding colored flags to lead the group in slowly moving music, written by a variety of composers. Now in its sixth year, this sonorous, atmospheric soundscape will return to the East Village, where it got its start at the first Make Music Winter in 2011. Participants will take to the streets, stopping at choice neighborhood locations to joyfully wave the flags and sound the bells winding up at Two Boots East Village. The parade gathers at 5:45 pm & begins at 6:00 pm in Tompkins Square Park (in the south-central oval area, closest to 7th st. between Ave. A & B). Sign up here to reserve a free slice & soda provided by our friends at Two Boots! With bell music from Eric Beach, Dan Edinberg (The Stepkids), Nat Evans, Eric Frederic, Amy Garapic, Robert Honstein, Matt Marble, Tom Peyton and Alex Waterman.
