Music Monday 2016

Join Canadians from every region of the country to emphasize the importance of music education on Music Monday!
Let's take a stand in BC and join in performing on the same day, at the same time, uniting the entire country in song.

WHAT:
Music Monday is an annual national and international event which celebrates the gift of music in our lives and advocates for the importance of music education. The Coalition for Music Education in Canada launched Music Monday in 2005.

WHEN:
A full day of music on the first Monday of May each year.
This year Music Monday is May 2, 2016, beginning at 9:00 am Pacific time.  From coast to coast, let’s fill the skies with music all at the same time!

WHO:
Everyone from school children and teachers to amateur and professional musicians, choristers, music retailers, local businesses, community groups, and local politicians can all get involved.

WHERE:       
In your community, large or small, from across BC, Canada, and around the world.  Let’s take our music to the streets and perform in unconventional locations, such as shopping malls, courthouses, office buildings, downtown street corners, libraries, on the pier, and coffee shops.

WHY:
There is strength in numbers.  This is a time for us to celebrate the galvanizing power of music in BC - to unite within our communities and express how much music means in our everyday lives and in our schools. We want to show the important links between school music programs, their communities and the cultural vitality of this country

HOW:
Participating is simple. Everything you need is FREE and available through MusicMonday.ca.
Let’s share our Music Monday events with others through photos and videos. Please email your photos and links to any videos to our BCCF Communications Coordinator at communications@bcchoralfed.com. We will then compile a video of province-wide Music Monday events, or share some of them via our social media channels. We can't wait to see and hear the results!
