Make Music Harvard Square / Fête de la Musique Volume 5
June 16, 2012
Locations around Harvard Square
On June 16th, the streets of Harvard Square will become a free, live music festival featuring more than 70 musicians from across the USA and Canada playing on 11 different stages. Make Music Harvard Square is inspired by the “Fête de la Musique,” a street-music festival which started 28 years ago in Paris.
The Fête de la Musique is now celebrated in more than 300 cities in 108 countries. Stop by Winthrop park between 3pm and 6pm to catch French-Canadian artists Pays D’Abondance (Land of Plenty), who will offer you their original songs and well known traditional pieces from the Quebec and Acadian repertoire, with spellbinding rhythms of the piano, the drums and the autoharp.
