This is an update to our ‘Music, Count Us In’ post.
The performance has come and gone.
We were part of the moment when 600,000 students sang the same song at the same time (simultaneously).
Here is LLPS performance…starring Ruby from SLY.
We received an email from Mrs McKenzie last week.
Once again it is time for the “Big Sing”!!
To give a little bit of background for those who haven’t experienced it,’Music count us in’ is a campaign which raises the awareness for teaching music in schools.
Lara Lake has participated in ‘The Big Sing’ for the last 4 years.
Once a year schools from remote Northern Territory, to Tasmania, and everywhere in between, gather and sing a song (an original song, co-written by secondary school students and a professional artist). This year the musician was Josh Pyke.
The idea is to get 500,000 students singing the same song at the same time all over the country.
There will be live cross overs as the performance is simulcast from Federation Square in Melbourne, Government House, Canberra and the Sydney Opera House.
Lara Lake will contribute to this occasion by gathering in the hall and singing the song at 12:30 on November the 1st.
Students will assemble in the new hall ready to sing the song by 12:25 on Thursday November the 1st. We will sit in assembly positions, and watch the big screen where there will be a live stream from Sydney Opera House.
We will count down, and sing the song.
This year the song is called ‘ Different People (Stand Together).
