In partnership with Wave Farm, Phil Kline's Unsilent Night returns to Hudson for a third year. Led by Phil Kline himself and broadcast live on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio For Open Ears. Participants gather at WGXC's Hudson Studio (369 Warren Street) inside the First Presbyterian Church of Hudson at Warren and 4th Streets (entrance on 4th). Participants can expect a route that engages Hudson's lesser traveled alleys and enclaves, and to come away with a new experience of the city's historic streetscape.

All are invited to participate. To do so:

  • Arrive to the WGXC Hudson Studio / First Presbyterian Church no later than 6:45 p.m.
  • Bring a boombox or smartphone with external speakers. (If you plan to use your smartphone, we recommend that you visit unsilentnight.com/participate before the event to download a track or the Unsilent Night app.)
  • A limited supply of boomboxes will be available to borrow on a first-come first-served basis.
  • 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. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music. Originally the music was played using only cassette tapes in boomboxes, but as vintage boomboxes have become harder to find, more people use smartphones with portable speakers to blast the music. Together all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. Visit unsilentnight.com for more information.
