Mayfield Secondary School student wins nation-wide anthem search
After a nation-wide search for The Coalition for Music Education's first Music Monday Anthem, Connor Ross, a Mayfield Secondary School student, was selected as the grand prize winner. Ross' “We Are One” will be featured nationally on CBC Radio and CBC television. Music Mondays has featured a few well-known Canadians, including Chris Hadfield who participated from space and Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies in 2012.
Ross will be a youth ambassador for the new Youth4Music program, which gives opportunities for youth to make a difference for music in their schools and communities.
The new Music Monday Anthem will be available in early January 2015, along with various arrangements, translations of the song's lyrics and audio demos.
