This is a musical concert where the whole family can participate. We’ll stroll through the historic West End neighborhood with your boomboxes and smart phones (with Bluetooth or battery-operated speakers) playing Phil Kline’s luminous soundscape, creating a beautiful experience you’ll never forget.

We’ll gather beforehand at Monday Night Brewing Garage where you can purchase one of their fine craft brews or a non-alcoholic, house-made ginger ale, then “perform” as we fill the streets with the four parts of Phil Kline’s composition. Our route will be a loop, bringing us back to the Garage. (A portion of the proceeds will benefit the project.)

When:
Sunday, December 10th
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm (all participants must please arrive by 6 pm)
6:30 - 7:15 pm - the concert

Where:
Atlanta's Historic West End
We’ll start and end at Monday Night Brewing’s Garage, walking for 45 minutes--the length of the composition--in a loop through the neighborhood, finishing where we started.

MORE ABOUT UNSILENT NIGHT
Over the past quarter century, Unsilent Night has become an international phenomenon, taking place in more than 100 cities, big and small, across 5 continents—from New York to San Francisco, and Brussels to Saskatoon.

Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December, always as a free event. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Originally the music was played using only cassette tapes in portable stereos, but as vintage boomboxes have become harder to find, more people use smartphones with portable speakers by downloading the free Unsilent Night app which randomly selects one of four tracks to play. Together, all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. Participants start their devices simultaneously, then walk a carefully chosen route through the city’s streets, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture that is different from every listener’s perspective.
