An international summer solstice musical celebration finds a festive new home base in Midtown — be part of the party at the E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts (CLARA) as they mark Fête de la Musique (Make Music Day) with a street busking festival and concert. Fête de la Musique was born out of a humble burst of musical idealism in Paris, France, during the summer of 1982. In just two decades, it has become a wildly popular global event: this year, the summertime festival will draw music lovers in 540 cities — including Sacramento — worldwide. Sacramento-area buskers will perform free to the public at various locations on the grounds of CLARA. Many styles of music will be performed by musicians, bands, orchestras, choirs, soloists and deejays. Other CLARA tenants, including Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy and the Brazilian Center for Cultural Exchange, will also host open performances in their studios at CLARA during Fête de la Musique. The Blues Broads will also perform a ticketed concert in CLARA Auditorium in the evening. In this star-studded show, each artist gives the audience a taste of their individual specialty, and then combine voices in ways that make The Blues Broads far more than the sum of its parts.
