FETE DE LA MUSIQUE is a big national musical event in France every year on June 21st. Professional and amateur musicians from all artistic horizons and musical styles participate. In recent years the event extended internationally. Today it exists in many other countries, promoting the idea of “music for all” and “everyone can play music” regardless the musical style, the age, the technical conditions etc…
This summer 2014, FETE DE LA MUSIQUE in The Hague introduces a special flavor as being linked to the big exhibition of French contemporary sculptures displayed open air on Lange Voorhout in The Hague and indoors at Museum Beelden aan Zee in Scheveningen. This exhibition, entitled GRANDEUR, will be officially inaugurated by the King of the Netherlands and the French Ambassador on June 17th. The artworks which also include masterpieces of Henri Laurens at Museum Beelden aan Zee can be seen during three months.
FETE DE LA MUSIQUE will then continue on June 21 at Alliance Francaise Rotterdam in the afternoon (16-18h) further on at the Maritiem Museum Rotterdam (18-24h) for an evening concert with 12 groups and 50 musicians in total organized by ENTENTE FRANCOPHONE NETHERLANDS & ALLIANCE FRANCAISE.
