Celebrating the Summer Solstice (today!) with Make Music New York

Today, Make Music New York rings in its 16th year celebrating the Summer Solstice with more than 1,000 concerts on streets, sidewalks and parks across the five boroughs. 

In the East Village, there are scheduled shows in Tompkins Square Park and on Astor Place... not to mention several community gardens. This map provides more details.

A special shout-out to Albert's Garden, one of the oldest community gardens in Manhattan (established 1971). 

From 6-8 this evening, you can find Just (Jazz) Friends, an ensemble playing vocal and instrumental jazz standards focused on the American Songbook, Brazilian jazz, and occasional forays into pop/R&B classics from the 1960s and 1970s. Poet Davidson Garrett will also make an appearance. Albert's Garden is at 16 E. Second St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
