Canadian Music Class Challenge

 

I am not alone in saying that I was blown away on Music Monday last year by how well our school comes together to make music. To continue that momentum, I have decided to enter our entire school into the CBC Music Class Challenge. Here is what the CBC has to say about their annual competition:

“Every fall, CBC Music in association with MusiCounts — the charity of the Juno Awards — launches a contest to engage music classes across the country with Canadian music. It’s called The Canadian Music Class Challenge. 

There are three goals to this project:

We want kids to learn Canadian music in the classroom.

We want to draw attention to the exceptional work music teachers are doing with children across the country.

We want to reinforce the importance of music in a well-rounded education.”

As we all know, there is amazing music that happens in all corners of our building. The goal of entering in this competition is to take those bright moments of music and showcase them to the entire nation and share how amazing Agnes Davidson is! Students will perform an arrangement of three influential Canadian songs with the entire school and a small group of students providing accompaniment. All of this will be captured by a single-take video that will be submitted to the competition. Our school is unique in that they do an amazing job of making music as a whole, not just as small groups. I am thrilled to showcase Agnes Davidson on a national stage!
