In addition, from 11:30AM-4:30PM, there will be a “Concerto for Buildings” on Greene St btw Grand St & Broome St.

Face the Music & Mantra Youth Percussion MMNY shuts down Greene Street, where eight buildings have hollow, cast-iron facades that resonate when struck, for a 30-minute Concerto for Buildings — a new work for full orchestra and 24 percussionists using the buildings as instruments, with four separate movements by four composers: Paula Matthusen (winner of the 2014-2015 Rome Prize), Scott Wollshleger, Daniel Goode, and Elijah Valongo (a student-composer in Face The Music). The Concerto premieres at 2pm, with other performances by Face the Music and Mantra Percussion throughout the day
