The Fête de la Musique, also known in English as World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21st June.

The first all-day musical celebration on the day of the summer solstice was originated by Jack Lang, then Minister of Culture of France, as well as by Maurice Fleuret; it was celebrated in Paris in 1982. Music Day later became celebrated in 120 countries around the world.

We shine a spotlight on two of our talented members of staff and find out a little more about their involvement in music.
