18.04.2016 - The world is full of music

(ot) The slogan 'The world is full of music' will certainly appeal to those philatelists who maintain one or more stamp collections about ‘music and dance’. In the year 2015, around 550 stamps were issued that fit in the aforementioned theme. We thank this knowledge to the German study group ‘Musik’, that made an inventory of stamps dedicated to music and/or dance. If you would like to see a sample of these issues you can go to; there you will find a selection of 72 stamps. Everybody who wishes to do so may cast a vote, in order to contribute to choosing the most beautiful music stamp of last year. The designer of the winning stamp will be awarded with the Yehudi Menuhin Trophy. There will also be a raffle among all participants in the vote; the winner receives a nice philatelic present. The deadline for voting is 31 July 2016.
