In recognition of the important contributions of musicians, music educators and music education programs in our schools and communities, Kelvin Goertzen, Minister of Education, has proclaimed May 2020 as Music Month in Manitoba.
Music plays a significant role in schools and the lives of students. Music Month provides an opportunity to recognize Manitoba’s rich musical heritage and appreciate the artists and educators involved in music programs in schools and communities.
Music Specialists in the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) guide students in the exploration of music and help them connect with others by expressing themselves through song and performance. All month long, LRSD students will be humming, singing, strumming, composing and playing in celebration.
