Music lovers are getting a chance to participate in the Fiesta Internacional de la Música because organizers are holding an open meeting Thursday morning.
The festival itself is planned for Saturday, June 18. This is the festival where music happens in unexpected locations all over the center city.
The festival also is observed in 120 countries. The event was born in 1982 in France. Alliance Française coordinates
the program. The meeting Thursday will be the first this year for volunteers and organizations that want to participate.
The music festival is a free event, and most of the music is in the open air. Organizations that participate promise to provide a sound system, legal authorization and other logistics for the event, Alliance Française said.
