49 Flutes @ Make Music New York

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Organized by Martha Cargo in collaboration with Make Music NY and Avant Media. 9flutist Martha Cargo and a team of 40 flutists will fill the city with music in at least 49 of the chance determined addresses in recognition of the 40th anniversary of Cage's composition.

To find addresses convenient you, please visit our Waltz Finder and explore.

Once you've selected a waltz, reserve it below as a ticket, and register your information with us. The Make Music team will be in touch with details and to coordinate your participation. You don't need to visit all three addresses in a waltz, but if you can, that's all the better. The goal is to gather documentation of music and sound and life from as many of Cage's spaces as possible.

Visit our FAQs for more answers, or send us an e-mail at and we'll help you out.

Thank you for taking part, and sharing your ears with us.


Not a flutist or not available on the 21st? Don't worry, visit any of the 147 addresses on your own or with friends, on the 21st or any time of year, and share what you hear. This site is an ongoing collection of documents from throughout the five boroughs.
