“Bell by Bell” is a fun Make Music Winter tradition, designed to transform first time participants and non-musicians into Music Makers — a perfect program for kids and families.

Meet at Astor Place Plaza, at the crossroad of the East and West Villages, before the 6pm start time, to be outfitted with color-coded bells that play different notes and receive an introductory crash course in hand bell playing basics. Then, Make Music's team of conductors will wave matching color-coded flags, prompting you and your fellow participants to collectively contribute to commissioned hand bell compositions that intensify as the group learns to play together.

This season features the world premiere of a new hand bell score, Gradient, by Nat Evans, which is part of a series of pieces relating to coyotes.

Register online in advance.
