Happy Summer!!

It's the summer solstice and on June 21 for the past 30 years, Paris and other towns and villages of France  celebrate the arrival of summer with a Music Fest lasting on the longest day of the year till dawn.  Music is everywhere and is played in churches, on the streets, in cafes and restaurants, concert halls, public parks and even rail stations.  Amateurs and professionals will play all genres from jazz to pop, funk, rock, classical and ethnic. The program is extensive to please all age groups and all musical tastes. This year, Pop is honored celebrating the 50th. year anniversary of the Beatles' release of their  hit single " Love me do". This festival has been so popular that the concept has spread  to some 32 countries around the world. Happy Summer!!
