You may have planned for the weekend, but don’t forget to plan for Monday, the Solstice, Make Music New York. I’ll be live blogging/tweeting during the day, and hope to have a follow-up with some audio samples. While a lot of travel is involved, I hope to be catching some Xenakis in Central Park, where the Oresteia will be given four times from 1PM to 10PM, and there are two performances of Persephassa, 4:15 and 5:45 in the afternoon.
Also on my short list are a Second Line parade, the Famous Accordion Orchestra at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Mobile In C in the Meatpacking District, funk in Williamsburg and pianos all over the city. Wear comfortable shoes. And be prepared for what can happen:
