CBC Music Class Challenge
CBC Music and MusiCounts join forces for the Canadian Music Class Challenge!
CBC Music in association with MusiCounts, Canada’s leading music education charity associated with CARAS and the JUNO Awards, have once again teamed up for the Canadian Music Class Challenge (formerly Canada’s Greatest Music Class). The challenge, which kicks off in September and runs through until December, will seek out students in music classes, music clubs and after-school programs nationwide.
This year there will be more opportunities to win, with six categories including:
- High School Instrumental
- High School with Vocal/Choral (a cappella or with band)
- Junior High School Instrumental
- Junior High school Vocal/Choral (a cappella or with band)
- Elementary School Instrumental
- Elementary School with Vocal/Choral (a cappella or with band)
The winning classes will be awarded hometown hero status, receiving a commemorative plaque and a high-tech classroom recording kit that includes a laptop computer, recording software, speakers, a keyboard, microphones, and more.
To enter the contest, a supervising teacher (the “Registrant”) of an eligible music class, after school program or music club (the “Music Class”) must register his/her music class by completing the entry form found at cbcmusic.ca/musicclass and submit an eligible video performance and “publicity” photo during the submission period.
There will be many songs for consideration and one could be a song from the CanadaSound Project that the students will cover. This list will be available at cbcmusic.ca/musicclass in June, 2017. Stay tuned for more details as this project unfolds!
