Music Monday is almost upon us! On May 4, 2015, youth across Canada will unite in song at the same time to celebrate music in our lives and communities. This year’s song is “We Are One” by 16 year-old singer/songwriter Connor Ross – winner of the Music Monday Anthem Search.

During the Music Monday broadcast, winners of the NUFSICISUM Award, which awards students who have made a significant difference for their music program, will be announced. The deadline for submissions is April 27.

Music Monday is also recruiting students interested in becoming Roving Reporters for the nation-wide event. The role involves chronicling their school and/or community’s participation in Music Monday through articles and social media activity. This is an official approved role with the Coalition for Music Education in Canada as part of our Youth4Music program and is perfect for students who have an interest in communications, journalism, photography or videography.

Youth4Music are gathering a groundswell of youth support to make a difference for music in their schools and communities.  Each special Music Monday performance on the live webcast will be hosted by a youth leader.
