World Music Day - Fête de la Musique

The Fête de la Musique is one of the two major cultural events of the year for the Alliance Française Port Harcourt.
Each year, it is one of the flagship events for students and relatives of the Alliance.
Abroad, the Fête de la Musique has grown considerably by becoming a national event in several countries (Luxembourg, Italy, Greece, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia) or by being supported by large metropolises like New York, Berlin or Mexico City. By adapting to the cultural specificities of each country, the Fête de la Musique has been able to invent and reinvent itself and become an emblematic international musical event. Music Day is celebrated in more than 120 countries.
