Fête de la Musique

Saturday June 29, 3pm, hosted by Pauline Cantin

The “Fête de la Musique” was created in France 40 years ago, and is now celebrated around the world on the first day of summer. During the festival, everyone is free to express hi or her musical talent and skills in all its forms, solo or in groups, in public or private, Any kind of music is allowed.

To celebrate the Fête de la Musique in our way, come up with your scores, instruments, voice or simply your ears, to share these joyful moments. We will play and listen to classical music, French folk songs and other surprises that you bring.

As dancing is the perfect companion to music, Pauline has promised to demonstrate folk dances!

After singing and dancing we will be hungry and thirsty, bring drinks and snacks to share.

For the successful organization of this event please contact Pauline Cantin 831-375-1801 or
