The annual Make Music New York Festival takes over hundreds of public spaces in the city today, the longest day of the year.

In the annual music-making event on the first day of summer, over a thousand free, impromptu musical concerts will be performed, ranging from rock, to classical, to jazz, and hip-hop. Highlights of Make Music New York include six interactive musical experiences in the meat-packing district, a percussion performance in Central Park where the audience sits in rowboats, and, of course, those 60 pianos scattered around the city's streets.
