December 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Breckenridge Music Festival

Become part of a holiday sound sculpture that moves through the streets of Breckenridge in this free event that transforms audience into artist. Tote a portable music player, including boombox, tape deck, Bluetooth speaker or smartphone, to amplify one of four tracks while strolling through a designated route downtown with a surprise stop and possible Santa sightings.

Gather in the Blue River Plaza between 4:30–5:00 pm for instructions. Immediately following the lighting of the holiday tree at 5:00 pm, the audience will push play in unison and walk the route together. Don’t have an old portable music device? A limited number of vintage boomboxes and phone speakers will be available on Saturday, December 2 from 3:00–5:00 pm in the Blue River Plaza on a first-come, first-served basis. To receive one of the four tracks, download the Unsilent Night app on your smartphone, download one of the sound files here, or visit Old Masonic Hall on December 1 and 2 to pick up a cassette or CD.
