Oral History Information
Aaron Friedman was composing in his New York City apartment when he was distracted by the constant sound of car alarms. He took action and helped create a city ordinance, which led to his involvement in the city’s government. After visiting France and taking part in the country’s Make Music day events, he thought he would ask his friends in city government to create such a program in New York. The first Make Music Day in New York took place in 2007, since that time he has expanded to other states under his Make Music Alliance.
