The Beat Will Go On
- Music Monday celebrations-
This year's annual Music Monday national celebration of music education staged by The Coalition for Music Education was to have included a significant contribution by schools and students of the Greater Essex County District School Board.
However the COVID-19 emergency has required a different approach to the goal of being #TogetherinHarmony on Monday, May 4th.
Students throughout the GECDSB will still be participating and some school communities will still be able to enjoy their musical skills, on-line.
Teachers and students are planning a variety of creative ways to celebrate, including photography, visual art, videos and research on Canadian music legend Oscar Peterson. He composed the musical theme for this year's Music Monday "Hymn to Freedom". Students across the country are scheduled to sing this anthem at 12:30 (Eastern Time) on Monday afternoon.
