    World’s Largest Concert, 25 years and counting!

    Kids Singing
    Sing along with us!

    This year marks a milestone as the Music Educators National Conference sponsors its twenty-fifth “World’s Largest Concert.”  Over six million teachers, students and members of the music community will participate in this year’s concert.   The concert is a marquis event of Music in Our Schools Month celebrations. 

    Participating students sing along with schools across the country, led by hostess Florence Henderson, famous for her role in “The Brady Bunch.”  Henderson is a well-known music advocate.  She joined basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at MENC’s Rally for Music Education held last June in Washington, D.C., where both communicated the importance of music education to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. 

    The World’s Largest Concert highlights the universal appeal of music.  Not only does the event give students a chance to participate in an event that brings their school together, but it brings them together with kids across the country.   The inclusive nature of music is just one of the many things we celebrate this month.  Congratulations MENC, on providing a platform for the celebration!

    1. Like I mentioned in my survey I took from the WLC survey, I really miss not seeing the program on PBS. I purchased the DVD last year and it just was not the same program that you have had on PBS.

      Therefore, I did not participate this year. Sorry
