October 1-rst, remembering The International Music Day
October 1st is a day full of holidays. Today we celebrate the International World Music, Poetry, Older Persons, Architects, Vegetarians Day.
The International Music Day was first celebrated in 1975 by a decision of the UNESCO International Music Council.
The IMD was initiated in 1975 by Lord Yehudi Menuhin to encourage:
- the promotion of our musical art among all sections of society
- the application of the UNESCO ideals of peace and friendship between peoples, of the evolution of their cultures, of the exchange of experience and of the mutual appreciation of their aesthetic values
- the promotion of the activities of IMC, its international member organizations and national committees, as well as its programme policy in general.
