Just a spoonful of music will help the medicine go down…at least it will for this year’s MUSIC MONDAY, taking place Monday May 2nd, 2022. Launched in 2005 by The Coalition for Music Education in Canada, Music Monday is one of the world’s largest single events dedicated to raising awareness for music education.
The 2022 Song of Celebration “Music is our Medicine” was written by youth musicians Mimi O’Bonsawin, a French-Canadian Indigenous lyricist, and Nicholas Ma, an award-winning composer from Oakville, ON currently attending Schulich School of Music at McGill University. This new work will be used in classrooms and celebrations across Canada for Music Monday 2022 and 2023. At 12:30 pm ET on May 2nd, the nation will join together to sing this song of celebration.
