Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day

Today is the day to celebrate musical instruments (and sounds) that you don’t come across every day – it’s Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

As long as there has been music, there have been people not content with the range of instruments and sounds already available; people who felt the need to create something new and unique, and sometimes just plain odd.

Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day is a holiday that was originally created to spread awareness about instruments that most people recongonize but just don't usually know the names of. For instance the baritone, sousaphone and mellophone.

To celebrate Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day make your friends and family more aware of instruments like these and help to inform the world of them too. To inform the world tell your friends and family,wish strangers ''Happy Uncommon Instrument Awareness day!'' ,have get togethers in the park and play those funky instruments with friends or just have your own celebration and learn about as many instruments as you possibly can.
