Music Monday in Kimberley

The Platzl will be filled with singing students at 11 a.m. Monday morning

Kimberley students are preparing for Music Monday.

 

Kimberley students will be singing in the Platzl on Monday morning at 11 a.m. In fact students will be singing across British Columbia and across Canada.

They’ll even be singing from the International Space Station. Astronaut Chris Hadfield has penned this year’s Music Monday song, in partnership with Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson.

Kimberley students, and students across Canada, have been learning the song, “ISS – Is Somebody Singing“ and are ready to perform on Monday.

Commander Hadfield will perform along with them from the Space Station.

Music Monday is in its sixth year now and is simply a celebration of music in schools, and a reminder of the importance of music as part of education.

Kimberley’s students have been blessed in recent years with solid music instruction, and a music program that is flourishing at all levels from elementary to secondary.

And all those levels will be in the Platzl Monday singing.

Marysville Elementary, Lindsay Park Elementary, McKim Middle School and Selkirk Secondary students will be performing a concert, hoping to make a connection with the community, and fill the skies with music, as the Music Monday motto states.

Along with the singing performance there will be recorder accompaniment by Lindsay Park, a mini band performance by Marysville Elementary (performing a song they worked on composing themselves), two choir performances and a band performance by McKim/Selkirk.
