First Make Music Day in Houston

The Cultural Service of the French Embassy and the Consulate General of France in Houston are joining with the City of Houston to celebrate Make Music Day on June 21, 2021, a Houston first!

What is Make Music Day? 

Make Music Day is a global celebration observed on June 21st, originating from the Fête de la Musique initiative, launched in France in 1982 by the Ministry of Culture. It is now held every year in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries on the same day.  This celebration is free and open to anyone who would like to participate. All amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform in the streets, bars, parks or even virtually, creating a rich programming of free concerts of all music genres throughout the city.
