Hundreds of music students from across Central Okanagan public schools will showcase their talent at Prospera Place in Kelowna next week.
To celebrate Music Monday, middle and high school music programs from Lake Country to West Kelowna will perform as a massed band and choir to demonstrate the power of music to bring people together.
The choir piece they will perform is Music is Our Medicine, composed by Mimi O’Bonsawin and Nicholas Ma. The lyrics share music’s ability to heal and help process life’s challenges.
"Our goal as a community of music educators is to help break down the barriers that prevent some students from accessing music education," says Kimberly Gorman, a music teacher at Glenrosa Middle School.
"We hope the visual of over 500 students playing together will demonstrate just how many lives music can touch."
The concert starts at 7 pm on May 29, and admission is by donation.
All proceeds go towards supporting music education in public schools.
Music Monday is a national event that supports access to music education in schools across Canada.
