On June 21, 1982, the Fête de la Musique launched in Paris as a free and spontaneous celebration of music during the summer solstice – the longest day of the year – embracing music of every style and musicians of all ages and abilities. In the past 30 years, the infectious, all-inclusive spirit of the Fête de la Musique has spread to 500 cities across the globe making the Fête de la Musique the world’s largest single day music celebration.

In 2011, at the request of French Consul General Graham Paul, Rush Hour Concerts inaugurated Make Music Chicago, bringing the Fête de la Musique to Chicago, and bringing Chicago into the global musical phenomenon.

Poetry Foundation is hosting three performances for this year's celebration:

12:30-1:00pm Evan Cauble-Johnson

1:00-1:30pm Immediate Family

1:30-2:00pm Fiddle Club of the World (Chicago Chapter) 

Presented by Rush Hour Concerts
