Fete de la Musique Brings Large Crowd to South End on Summer Solstice!

On June 21st, Community Music Center of Boston (CMCB) presented Fête de la Musique, a collaboration with Make Music Boston and the French Consulate that brought outdoor music throughout the city on the summer solstice.  CMCB offered music at four locations in the South End, performed by a diverse line-up of professional musicians, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

Various community organizations and businesses partnered with CMCB this year in order to elevate the experience of those in attendance and offer additional activities at each venue.  Over 200 people listened to classical pianist Danny “Satori” Kutty and then proceeded into the Mills Gallery at the BCA to view their current exhibit while enjoying wine and cheese.  A consistently large crowd surrounded Design Within Reach, also on the BCA plaza, and danced to the tunes of a sibling group, Grace and the Carnivore. The festival was just as lively inside Design Within Reach where guests and passersby were enjoyed a large spread of indulgences from decedent cakes to fine cheeses and lounged on the eclectic and modern displays within Design Within Reach.   Over a hundred families at both Ringgold Park and Union Park were relaxing to the sounds of Eric Royer and the The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, enjoying free ice cream provided by Ben & Jerrys and sharing their own picnics with neighborhood friends.  Both locations were filled with children dancing to the music while holding bright yellow balloons in celebration of the summer solstice.
