May 2, 2005 -
Sudbury Catholic District School Board together with its family of schools will be welcoming spring of 2005, on the first Monday of May with a series of musical concerts. Schools will take their music programs outside into the open air of their school grounds, to perform a short concert. There will be a series of outdoor school concerts across the country from the elementary level through to secondary schools.|
The magic of the event is that at the same point during the day, (1:00 p.m.) schools across the country will be united by one piece of music. Simple and inspiring, this melody will be provided to schools in a variety of arrangements suitable for primary choirs through to senior high school bands and orchestras. In short, it is a piece of music that can transcend all genres and unite everyone through the melody and the act of playing or singing it at the same time.
The idea being that if one were to open the front door of his or her home and stand on the street on Monday, May 2, 2005, one would hear music and the skies would be filled with melody. Music Monday is promoted by the Coalition for Music Education in Canada.
