The Musician's Day is celebrated on November 22, to celebrate everyone who is in some way or the other about music. The date commemorates the death of St Cecilia, half legendary character, a miracle of Christianity and the sponsor of the musicians.

Some sources mention that paintings of 15th century painters are that Santa Cecilia is associated with music, as they show her to play the harp and other instruments.[cita requerida]

This celebration began on November 22 with a celebration held in the French town of Evreux (Normandy), with a composer tournament. Since 1695, the Musician's Day was held in Edinburgh (Scotland) with some regularity. Subsequently, so did Germany, Spain and France. In Latin America this tradition of holding a party in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) began between 1919 and 1920, and spread into the rest of America.
