This Saturday, June 21, more than 726 cities around the world will celebrate the longest day of the year with a global celebration of music making. In New York City, there will be over 1,300 concerts on streets, sidewalks, and parks across the five boroughs, all free and outdoors. As part of Make Music New York, Gamelan Kusuma Laras, the Javanese music ensemble that I play with, will be throwing a block party on East 68th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, in front of our home base, the Indonesian Consulate. We’ll be playing from 12 noon until 6 pm. Feel free to drop by for a few minutes or stay all afternoon!
