(With apologies for the technical issues during the show…)
During the week to come, on the Solstice, the world will be celebrating Fête de la Musique (Festival of Music). The joke in French is that it’s pronounced the same as “Faites de la Musique”, which means “Make Music”, and which people have decided to do all over the world for several years now.
So Fête de la Musique has become Worldwide (Make) Music Day. There will be free live music events all over the world. If you can hit it, strum it, pluck it, bow it, blow through it, tap it, or sing it, you’ll probably hear it somewhere in the world.
Here is the wonderful “Declaration of Principles” from the Fête: https://www.fetedelamusique.de/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files/2015/02/Fete-Agreement-englisch.pdf
In honor of this immense day — where the world can change — we present an entire program of live music. In this case, we mean music that was performed live over the years and recorded for posterity (maybe next year we’ll do an *actual* live event!).
We add an extra hour to this special program because there’s so much great music available — and this is just scratching the surface!
