Sing it Together

The Coalition for Music Education commemorates our country’s musical heritage with a new Music Monday anthem that celebrates the unifying power of music.

Sing It Together is a collaboration between multi-award winning veteran songwriters Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas. The recording and video feature Inuit throat singing, Métis fiddling, indigenous drumming, respected professional musicians, and children’s choirs in celebration of Canadian musical heritages.

Music Monday will take place on Monday, May 1, 2017 in cities across the country, anchored by a showcase event in Ottawa, ON.
