Music Monday 2018

On Monday May 7th, 2018 we soared over the distances that separate us by coming together to share a common experience though music.


On Monday May 7th, we soared over the distances that separate us by coming together to share a common experience though music. We raised our voices alongside passionate students, teachers, parents, and community members. We demonstrated how music lives where we do, and we actively participated in advocating for its value in our schools. Together, with hundreds of thousands across the country, we made a difference for music education.


As we wrap up our celebrations, we look forward to Music Monday 2019 with an exciting announcement! The Coalition will commission a new Music Monday choral anthem and instrumental arrangements of a well-known Canadian composition. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Join us, we can’t do it without you. Add your voice!

Our Music Monday Anthem

The Music Monday anthem serves as a rally cry for the importance of music in our schools and in our lives. On May 7th, 2018, hundreds of thousands of participants will join together to sing and play the Anthem across the country in schools, public parks, and communities to celebrate the galvanizing power of music.

Sing It Together

Sing It Together is a collaboration between JUNO award winning, veteran songwriters Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas. Focusing on the power of voices, Sing It Together asks us to sing for joy, for truth, for healing and for freedom. The recording and video feature Inuit throat singing, Métis fiddling, indigenous drumming, and children’s choirs in celebration of Canadian musical heritages. Creating Sing It Together was a journey of discovery and the songwriters encourage music makers to continue this discovery where music lives in their schools and communities.

Sing for joy. Sing for healing. Sing for freedom.

Inspired by Canada’s sesquicentennial celebration, the Coalition for Music Education commemorates Canada’s musical heritage with a new Music Monday anthem that celebrates the unifying power of music. Commissioned by the Coalition for Music Education, the new anthem is co-written by award-winning songwriters Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas. Entitled Sing It Together, the new anthem is available in various languages and arrangements to be used in this year’s Music Monday celebration. This year, Music Monday will take place on Monday, May 7, 2018 in cities across the country.
