Thank you to all band members and voters for participating in our #SyrSoundStops Battle of the Bands! Be sure to try your hand on the instruments at the Sound Stops yourself!



Keep your ears and eyes open! Our permanent outdoor musical instruments that we've been showcasing around town the past few weeks have been installed in two locations in downtown Syracuse: Columbus Circle, across from the Crouse-Hinds Theater and Lemp Park, at the corner of Fayette and Warren Streets. The third location will be the Everson Plaza at the Everson Museum. The large-scale, tuned instruments designed for year-round music-making are harmonious together, require no prior training or musical knowledge to play, and are kid-friendly and ADA accessible.

Started as a partnership between Symphoria and the Connective Corridor, the project has expanded to include the Everson Museum of Art, the SU Setnor School of Music, the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County. Working together, our aim is to distinguish downtown Syracuse as a uniquely creative and collaborative environment, and a fun place to live, work, and visit.

We encourage you to go out and visit the Syracuse Sound Stops to try your hand! Be sure to share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #SyrSoundStops tagging @SymphoriaCNY.
