Casey Donovan Supports Music: Count Us In

Yesterday, Australia’s Big, Beautiful & Sexy star Casey Donovan helped launch the national project Music: Count Us In.

Across Australia at 11.30am AEST  on Thursday, 2 September 2010 , 500,000 students, teachers and families from 1600 school communities joined together to perform this year’s theme song, ‘Come Play Your Part’ in the massive nationwide celebration of the value of school music education. Voices, drums, ukuleles, recorders, violins, rock bands and orchestras rang out over the entire country, from Campbelltown to Kalgoorlie, Katherine to Cammeray.

Congratulations everyone! You helped make Music: Count Us In 2010 really big and really loud!

Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra hosted countdown events which were webstreamed live.

Music: Count Us In is Australia’s biggest school music initiative. With support from The Australian Government, it has run since 2007 and is all about celebrating the value of music education to students’ development, whoever they are, wherever they are. It involves about half a million students, teachers – and often parents! – from schools all over Australia signing up to  learn, rehearse then perform the same song, on the same day, at the same time.

Music: Count Us In is for all schools, primary schools and high schools, State and independent schools, nationwide. It doesn’t cost anything for schools to participate and all the support materials, including song charts and arrangements and classroom activity kits are freely available and downloadable.
