Mark your calendars for Music Monday on May 5th 2014, as we celebrate 10 years of this extraordinary platform demonstrating the galvanizing power of music education.
For the past ten years, we have united the nation in song to celebrate and raise awareness of how music programs shape young lives and to recognize music education as a pillar to a well-balanced educational experience. Together, we have projected our voices in harmony and have illustrated links between school music programs, our communities and the cultural vitality of this diverse country. For our 10th Anniversary, we’re planning another special celebration that will include Chris Hadfield, Canadian science centres, Canadian musicians and hundreds of thousands of young music makers in schools and communities across Canada.
We invite you to join us in ‘Filling the skies with music’ and making May 5th the biggest Music Monday yet! Let’s start planning!
