Music Monday, May 5, 2014: Show Your Support for Music Education!

Chris Hadfield

Imagine more than 600,000 musicians, from all ages and backgrounds, performing one song at the same time all across Canada. The staggering size of the event is hard to comprehend, but on May 5, the 10th anniversary of Music Monday will bring this dream to life.

Music Monday is a nationwide celebration of music education in Canada, organized by the Coalition for Music Education. This year, Vancouver was chosen as the official location where the Music Monday song will be broadcast from.
Christin Reardon MacLellan, president of the Coalition for Music Education in B.C., believes that the large pool of participants shows that music is far from being a niche interest.

“No matter where you’re from, what language you speak, what your background is,” she says, “music is common to everyone.”

The Music Monday song, entitled I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing) was co-commissioned by the coalition and CBC Music, and written by Commander Chris Hadfield and Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson.
