Wandering Winter Solstice Concert with Make Music New York

Exhibits | Special Events | Light in Winter

Friday, December 21, 2018 | 11:45 a.m.–1 p.m.
Meet at Magnolia Plaza

Celebrate the start of winter throughout the Garden with Make Music New York and the fifth iteration of a special participatory performance of Franz Schubert’s 1828 song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey), created by Chris Herbert.

Baritone and rising star Tobias Greenhalgh will lead the performance, which migrates throughout newly restored sections of the Garden, stopping at locations that reflect the vivid imagery of Wilhelm Miller’s poetry and Schubert’s music. Audience members will provide musical accompaniment via hand-held radios that emit the original music accompaniment.

Please register ahead of time by sending an email with the subject line “Winterize” to [email protected].
