Mallorca celebrates the European Day of Music today, June 21st, now also known as World Music Day.
The photo shows the Banda Municipal de Música de Palma, performing bits of Carmen by Georges Bizet, two weeks ago at Palma’s Plaça Mayor.
If you are into music and want to celebrate, you can either attend a Koto performance by Yoko Nomura, in Alaró, the Coro Infantil de la Fundación Teatre Pricipal, in Sant Joan, or the Banda de Música de Calvià, in Son Servera.
Normally it would be Summer Solstice today as well, except strictly speaking, this year that happened yesterday already. But as it’s Saturday today, there will be Mid Summer Night festivities all over the island, with activities mainly in Palma, at the Fundació Joan Miró, in Andratx, at the Centre Cultural Sa Taronja, in Sant Joan, the Festa de ‘Sol que bailla’, and Les festes de Sant Joan in Son Servera.
The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 6th, 2008. The time was 20:02:23.
