Year 4/5 students were excited to participate in CBC’s Canadian Music Class Challenge, while paying tribute to one of Canada’s most beloved musical groups.
In partnership with MusiCounts (Canada’s leading music education charity), CBC Music hosted a contest called “CBC’s Canadian Music Class Challenge” in which music classes from across the country were encouraged to upload a video to CBC Music’s YouTube Channel of their group performing a pre-cleared Canadian song. Year 4/5 team chose to learn for this contest is “Ahead by a Century” by The Tragically Hip.
Our group photo and performance video was submitted to CBC headquarters and they were entered to win one of six prize packages including a custom commemorative plaque and a classroom recording kit valued at approximately $5,200.
The students’ videos have since been posted to CBC Music’s Youtube channel.
