Let’s Sing It Together on Monday, May 1st!

Music Monday is just around the corner - how are you celebrating this year? Are you hosting a celebration at your school? Partaking in one of the many Special Events across Canada? Attending the National Showcase Concert in Ottawa? However you decide to celebrate, we hope you’ll tune into our Live Showcase Concert webcast at 12:00pm EDT where we’ll Sing It Together with passionate music makers and supporters across the country.  We are thrilled to announce our National Showcase Concert co-hosts, soprano superstar Measha Brueggergosman and MP Seamus O’Regan. There will be lots of live music from a variety of musical groups and genres including Marc Jordan to sing the Music Monday Anthem live! We can’t wait!


We need to stand up for music and music education in Canada. The benefits of music in the lives of all children and youth in Canada are clear - it’s up to us to raise our voices for the future of music in this country. Now is the time - we can do this together! Make sure you’ve registered your celebration and support at and stand with us for music education.
