On June 21, 2018, Music Day and several national and international celebrations converge on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. World Music Day (Fête de la Musique) originated in Paris, France in 1982.
How are you celebrating World Music Day, also known as Make Music Day and Music Day, landing on National Selfie Day, International Yoga Day, and the Summer Solstice? Making music? Posting a selfie? Holding a pose? (All three?)
For starters, please enjoy these inspiring quotes and photos from Leonard Bernstein — the iconic American conductor, composer, educator, and activist. (While you explore, you can listen to The Bernstein Experience 24/7 stream of his compositions and performances: just click the play icon above.)
Every day is a good day to make music — and make music more accessible to all.

Not every day can be World Music Day, National Selfie Day, International Yoga Day, AND land on the Summer Solstice. But, can every day be this special? Absolutely! Make every day “Make Music Day”!
