Half a million young singers

Music: Count Us In. Half a million is the number being tossed around. That’s a lot of kids singing at the same time, all around the country. They sang a song composed by five students from three states with help from The Cat Empire’s Harry James Angus, and recorded by students from a Sydney school. All inspired by Music Australia.

I heard about this just in time on RN Breakfast, and tuned in for the live web stream. Being a parent of a school kid, I’m surprised I had no idea about this, but I guess there is a heap of competing things a school might do, and staff time to focus on them is a balancing act. I wonder if we could get involved next year.
