Fête de la Musique

Today is la Fête de la Musique, an annual tradition founded by French culture minister Jack Lang and now celebrated around France and throughout the world. If you are lucky enough to live in a place where there is music all day today (and no strikes), go listen. If not and you are a musician, set up with your friends on the front porch and play. If you are stuck on the computer most of the day, then go to, where all the videos are free in honor of the day, until midnight (European time). In just a couple hours, you can watch Glyndebourne's production of Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia, directed by Annabel Arden and starring Danielle de Niese, Taylor Stayton, and Björn Bürger. Enrique Mazzola conducts the London Philharmonic.
