Dr. Andrea Rose would like to call your attention to the upcoming international singing symposium, taking place in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on July 10-13, 2011.
Her message is as follows:
This example of singing across a country at the same time is taking place in Australia and is similar to one in Canada on the first Monday of May. What is the potential for this to become a world event? On what day should it happen? World peace day? Earth day? Music day if there is one? Hearing day? Children's day?
