Commissioned by the Public Art Fund, "Musical," according to press notes is a "series of spontaneous actions orchestrated by ... Dara Friedman. From dawn to dusk, and occasionally even in the middle of the night, office workers, mothers, schoolchildren, taxi drivers, doormen, tourists, divas, and grandparents will break into song, creating unexpected musical events and serendipitous urban moments for all who encounter them. Throughout the course of the project, nearly one hundred individual actions will take place throughout the day and night, weekdays only, in the blocks between Grand Central Station and Central Park South, and between Broadway and Park Avenue."

About "Musical" Friedman had previously said that she hoped to "turn the volume up on the song that's going on in your head as you're walking down the street."
