City Hall was alive with the sound of music today as about 100 local students, along with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, performed a concert at the Municipal Building to celebrate the 5th annual Music Monday.
The short City Hall concert was highlighted by the students’ rendition of the song "Sing Sing" by Canadian singer-songwriter Serena Ryder. The beauty of the event is that our little concert in Calgary was being performed simultaneously across the country with an estimated 850,000 other music enthusiasts. The event is held on the first Monday in May every year to demonstrate the importance of music education, in our lives and in our schools.
Serena Ryder's "Sing Sing" can be heard on CBC's Music Monday page.
