About the Holiday

Strange Music Day was started by Julliard graduate and professional musician, Patrick Grant, who also serves as founder and artistic director of Strange Music Inc., an organization dedicated to releasing recordings and presenting compelling new work. The purpose of Strange Music Day is to "listen to a CD you never heard before, just for the hell of it".

This holiday was originated on August 24th, 1998, when it's founder flew a "Strange Music" banner during his inaugural concert at the Knitting Factory in New York City. Since then, a number of small organizations around the world, a growing number of radio stations as well as a large number of summer school programs have adopted this holiday.
