Nothing but Sunshine for Fête de la Musique

On June 21st, stormy weather patterns in Boston stopped just in time for the celebrations of Fête de la Musique, much to the delight of families and visitors to the South End neighborhood. Hosted by Community Music Center of Boston (CMCB) in collaboration with the Consulate General of France in Boston, and local businesses and organizations, Fête de la Musique drew in crowds to celebrate the summer solstice with a diverse lineup of free, outdoor music throughout the South End.

Attendees enjoyed the rambunctious energy of the Party Band in Union Park and the family-friendly tunes of Eric Royer in Ringgold Park, while savoring free ice cream and doughnuts from Ben & Jerry’s and Blackbird Doughnuts. On Tremont Street, jazz filled the air with the relaxing and intriguing music of duos Carmen Marsico & Bjorn Wennas and Claudia Eliaza & Maxim Lubarsky.

Adult attendees perusing artwork at the Mills Gallery sipped on wine and enjoyed fine cheeses and fruit. Meanwhile, children chased bright balloons and applied temporary tattoos outside of Hammond Realty. At the Atelier 505 plaza, guests enjoying the sunny patios at Picco and Barcelona topped off their dinners with samples of David’s Tea and the sounds of the Phil Sargent Trio.
