The Catalan Orpheon, aka the Palau de la Musica Catalana, one of Barcelona’s 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, celebrated today el Dia de la Musica, World Music Day, by opening it’s doors for free. The Palau was inaugurated in 1908, and is a wonderful example of Catalan Modernist style. If you want to know more about it, please go here.
I don’t know if the World Music Day is celebrated worldwide… It started in France in 1982, when Jack Lang, Minister of Culture, decided to celebrate summer by a big party. Basically, everybody started making music in the street, free concerts everywhere… It is now celebrated in many countries, even in Bahrain, so I heard today. Is it celebrated in your country?
Here is what Wiki has to say about it.
