Music Monday 2019
On Monday, May 6th we will be celebrating Music Monday 2019! Organized by the Coalition for Music Education, Music Monday is an annual national event celebrating the importance of music in our lives and especially in our schools. It began in 2005. Once again the MSIC will be creating a Music Monday video and we would love your participation. This year we will be using Oscar Peterson’s “Hymn To Freedom” for our compilation video. This is the official 2019 Music Monday anthem. All parts for various instruments and ensembles can be found on the Collation for Music Education’s Music Monday website (http://coalitioncanada.ca/musicmonday/en/). Please be sure to register your school as a participant through the Music Monday website. This not only helps with advocacy and data for the Collation but there are fantastic prizes being awarded to registered schools as well.
Please send a video (filmed horizontally) of your group (choir, band, orff ensemble, etc) performing the song “Hymn to Freedom” to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 18th, 2019. Just like last year, we will take sections of each video submission and put them all together to make our own unique take on the song!
Every school that submits a video will be entered to win a $250 prize to go toward their Music Monday celebrations! Get your video in to have your chance at the prize!
