Music Day (in French: Fête de la Musique) is an annual music festival held on June 21, the first day of summer (and also the longest day of the year), in many cities around the world.
The idea of a musical celebration throughout the day on a day when the season alternates from spring to summer, was originally by American musician Joel Cohen, who spent two seasons as a producer of musical programs on national French radio. His idea was implemented and officially made a national holiday by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang. More countries liked the idea and the festival later became a holiday in 110 countries around the world.
It is hard to imagine a culture where music does not play a vital role. The benefits of music to the human soul are intangible, but they are enormous. Music opens up new worlds for people. It can be used to tell stories, to inspire, or to help people relax. On Music Day people all over the world gather together to celebrate the incredible power of music.
The perfect way to celebrate this day is to make music, alone or with friends. You do not have to be a musician, because anyone can make music. If you have kids, they love something as simple as knocking on pots and pans and singing. If you do not know how to play, you can meet for a karaoke evening with friends. Even if you do not have any musical talent, you can spend the day listening to your favorite songs. The great thing about music is that it's for everyone.
