Music Monday comes to Cranbrook

A delegation of more than 300 students from Cranbrook Schools will gather at the Tamarack Mall at 1:15 on Monday, May 5 as part of the nation-wide celebration of Music Monday 2014. This will be the 10th anniversary of students celebrating music across Canada on the first Monday in May. Everyone is welcome to come hear these Cranbrook youth showcase the gift of music.

Music helps bring out the best in young people, nourishing self-esteem and keeping them engaged. Studies have shown that students who participate in music activities also experience greater success in math, reading and science. We are fortunate in Cranbrook to have a Board of Education and district administration who support music education and value the presence of these programs in our schools, for this is not the case in some areas of BC.

This Music Monday celebration builds upon the past success of large organized musical events in Cranbrook, such as the annual Christmas Mass Choir concert and recently the International Choral Festival. Keeping music alive in our schools is the hope of all music teachers.

Come celebrate music education in our community and across Canada.
