The Make Music New York festival brings free music to the streets and we’re inviting you to participate. Meet Jeff Spurgeon and Naomi Lewin by one of the public pianos by the New York Public Library and help us make some music. Bring your sheet music, bring a song or just bring your lunch. We’ll meet at the piano by the New York Public Library, located at Fifth Ave. and 41st Street on Tuesday at 12 noon.

Update: Thanks to all who joined us today -- as audience members and participants. Stay tuned for a video from the proceedings.

In this express age, the young potential listening audience cannot sit for a 3 hour opera. Look at the 21st century classical music crisis on the horizon. How about 'lite versions' of Boheme and Butterfly to entice the up and coming romantics with far less patience than their forefathers?

Regrettably, I missed it again! Last year I had an obligation and was unable to come over around the time two of you were out there. This year, I was just busy since last weekend and did not know, notice you are going to do it again and when. I was working at a conference whole day today (Monday) at the hotel not far from New York Public Library, had no way to come out, even though I knew two of you were there. Unfortunately, tomorrow (Tuesday) to I will be working for the conference as it ends tomorrow. Well, let us know how it went : )
