On Monday May 4, hundreds of thousands of children, youth, teachers, parents and community members across Canada will join #TogetherInHarmony for Music Monday. Our 2020 anthem is Oscar Peterson’s iconic “Hymn to Freedom,” with lyrics by Hariette Hamilton. We have an exciting year ahead, as we look forward to celebrating Oscar Peterson’s 95th birthday! Check out the Oscar Peterson Learning Guide to read more about this Canadian legend, and champion of music education.
Starting October 23, you can register your event to unlock access to anthem sheet music, recordings, learning guides and more! You can also apply for Music Monday Support Money, and for weekly draw prizes. Your event will be placed on the national map, showcasing Canada’s collective commitment to music education. Join us on May 4 to celebrate the power of music, and to advocate for equitable access to quality music education for all Canadian students.
