Festival to celebrate Music
In October 1981, Maurice Fleuret , when he discovered, in a 1982 study on the cultural habits of the French, one young person out of two, played a musical instrument, he began to dream of a way to bring people out on the streets.
It first took place in 1982 in Paris as the Fête de la Musique. Ever since, the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries.
Alliance Française de Penang, along with our partner, Gurney Plaza, will celebrate The Music Festival like every year.
This year, it is on 22 June 2019 from 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM at Gurney Plaza.
