Join the Coalition for Music Education in British Columbia and students from across the district to protest against the proposed cuts to elementary band and strings for the 2016-2017.
"The importance of music education is far-reaching and well documented in research and education curricula worldwide. Yet, its core purpose is quite simple: music education is essential to learning, development, and to being human. I invite you to join us and to support the work of the Coalition for Music Education in BC as we advocate for quality music education, taught by skilled professionals, across our province."
- Christin R. Maclellan
President, Coalition for Music Education in British Columbia
- 4 p.m.: meet at W. 10 x Fir (VSB offices)
- Bring any instrument (you do not need to play it)
- Bring a music stand (if possible)
- Become a silent orchestra: we stand together for the thousands of silenced elementary students who, should the status quo persist, will be deprived of artistic opportunities in 2016-2017
