La fete de la musique…

 

If whilst walking through the streets of Paris your ears are captivated by beautiful sounds … don’t be surprised, it simply means that today, Paris hosts “ La Fete de la musique” and you are witnessing live music performances.

Everything started with a dream … that was once dreamt by Maurice Fleuret, who became head of ‘Music and Dance’ in 1982. He learned that 1 out of 2 French people mastered at least one musical instrument and imagined them playing in the streets of Paris…

His vision of music was as follows: « the music is everywhere and the concert is nowhere”.This helped determine the concept of “La Fete de la musique”. On the 21st of June 1982 Her Majesty Music filled the streets of Paris, and Maurice Fleurets’ dream thus came true.

The streets of Paris welcomed the event with enthosiasm and the French are always eager to participate in it.
