Switzerland. Geneva. Town Center. A fanfare is playing in the streets on Music Day. A fanfare is a short musical flourish that is typically played by trumpets or other brass instruments, often accompanied by drums. People listen to the music. The Fête de la Musique, also known in English as Music Day, Make Music Day or World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21 June ( but usually during the previous or following weekend). On Music Day the citizens of a city or country are allowed and urged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public spaces and parks. Free concerts are also organized, where musicians play for fun and not for payment. 22.06.1993 © 1993 Didier Ruef
