Over 200 students from across Metro Vancouver will perform the new Music Monday anthem, Sing It Together, and more works as part of a national event for music education next month.
On Monday, May 7, at 10 am in Robson Square, an ensemble of Metro Vancouver elementary and secondary students will give a free public concert, as part of the 14th annual Music Monday, a cross-Canada event to raise awareness for music education.
Maestro Gerald King from the University of Victoria will conduct the mass performance along with Canadian artist Tarun Nayar from Delhi 2 Dublin and youth co-hosts from the CMEC Youth 4 Music Network.
Launched in 2005 by The Coalition for Music Education, Music Monday is the world’s largest single event dedicated to promoting music education with over one million student performers across Canada.
The Music Monday event is presented by the Coalition for Music Education in Canada (CMEBC) and sponsored by Tom Lee Music, Long & McQuade, Coastal Jazz and Blues Society, British Columbia Music Educators Association, Vancouver Opera, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
The CMEBC is a registered non-profit society made up of parents, educators, arts organizations, and supporters from across the province, whose mission is to protect, promote, and advance music education in BC.
