EVENTS NOT TO MISS : FETE DE LA MUSIQUE tonight and tomorrow 

On June 21, the streets of Paris will be filled with the sounds of music. This day of musical celebration was created by Jack Lang, the French Minister of Culture under François Mitterand’s presidency. It is now a world event, but special in Paris and very exclusive in le Marais, where many of the beautiful hôtels particuliers, art galleries, and mansions open their gardens for classical music concerts.
Find out more about locations and times at www.fetedelamusique.culture.fr.

Enjoy music all day long, from morning to midnight in every nook and cranny of Paris. Here’s a tip: buy Le Parisien newspaper that day for a special edition that will list where to go and what to see in each district. Below we’ve chosen to highlight two among the many fabulous concerts to see during this annual event.
