Join us in downtown Albion, Michigan for theglobal celebration of Fête de la Musique (“Music Day”, “Make MusicDay”, “World Music Day”) beginning at 5pm on Tuesday, June 21st,the Summer Solstice!

On Music Day the citizens of a city or countryare allowed and encouraged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or inpublic spaces and parks. Free concerts are also organized, where musicians playfor fun and not for payment.

The idea is that “everybody shares theirmusic”.

– All styles of music
– All ages of people
– Groups or solo acts
