International Music Day 2021: History Maurice Fleuret, Director of Music and Dance of the Ministery of Culture of France in 1981 was responsible for World Music Day. On the day of the Summer Solstice 1982, the first celebration took place.
Fleuret and the then French Minister for Culture, Jack Lang Lang, realised that musical concerts did not represent a large group of young players. In 1982 they and Christian Dupavillon, architect and stage designer, developed a plan to gather musicians into the streets in Paris.
The concert was held on 21 June 1982, and it was attended both by amateur and professional musicians of all corners of France. It was held in Paris around several public places.
This annual concert was also adopted by others on the occasion of the European Year of Music in 1985. In 1997 the European Music Festival in Budapest signed a charter.
