CBC Music, in association with MusiCounts, is challenging Canadian music classes to perform their best cover of a Canadian song. From elementary to high school, the Canadian Music Class Challenge wants to hear everything from jazz bands, kazoo classes and guitar clubs, to hip-hop programs, symphonies and choirs. Whether your music program is traditional, or on the cutting edge of a music genre and style, they want to hear your take on one of these great Canadian songs.
So, what is the Canadian Music Class Challenge? We want your music class to choose one of our pre-cleared songs, perform it on video, and upload it to CBC Music. It’s a chance to get a great Canadian song into your curriculum, while also featuring some of Canada’s best up-and-coming musical talent: students from classrooms and music programs all over the country.
