Macy’s said the show will include the launching of more than 48,000 shells from five barges on the East River between East 23rd Street and East 24th Street. The show will be visible from three boroughs of the city.
Macy’s said the show is synced to a musical score and features seashells and effects in 30 colors and shapes.
“New shape effects that will wow viewers include top hat, mushroom and little snake shells, as well as interlocking tricolor rings and flashing smiley faces. This year’s design will average over 1,900 shells and effects per minute.
A third of the total number of shells in this year’s show will feature multiple effects bringing more pyrotechnic firepower to the festivities that will span a mile across the East River in a multi-layered presentation, reaching spectacular heights of 1 000 feet to the water’s edge.
Ray Chew is the musical director. Musical highlights include “The Star-Spangled Banner” performed by the United States Army Field Band and the Soldiers’ Chorus, “Born in the USA”, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” featuring Kenny Lattimore and the Community Baptist Church Choir , and “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” performed by the Young People’s Chorus of New York.
The signature Macy’s Golden Mile will feature Joaquina Kalukango singing “a mash-up of ‘My Country Tis of Thee’ and ‘America the Beautiful’ with ‘thousands of golden-hued seashells…’
The lineup includes Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, Pitbull, the cast of “Freestyle Love Supreme” and the cast of “Moulin Rouge!” Musical comedy.
