People ask me all the time, how it is that I can work all year on a project that only lasts one day. Well, there is actually a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes when you are coordinating a global event like World Singing Day coming up on Saturday, October 20, 2018. This year, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible team of people all over the world. My days have been filled with emails and texts and skype sessions and my heart has been filled with gratitude for each of these fabulous people. Let me introduce you to them.
Scott Johnson is the founder of World Singing Day.
Peter Sharp is the founder of The Liberators and has helped us spread WSD around the globe this year.
Sue Ross is the founder and director of Choirs4Kids and Vivid Voices singing groups in Australia. This year, she started the WSD Australia website and helped coordinate events all over Australia.
Christos Pantazis is the co-founder of Oxygenna and the creator of our amazing World Singing Day website.
Sridhar Ranganathan is the CEO and founder of the Shankar Mahadavan Academy, Cloodon, Meghshala & Shrenis. Sridhar has been a WSD board member since the very beginning.
Paul Andrews is the founder of The Bridge Studios. Paul helped us record and master the 2018 Song of the Year, Ode to Song.
Jeff & Paige are some of Boulder’s favorite kids musicians and eco-educators. This year, they will be kicking-off our Sing Along Boulder Festival at the epicenter of World Singing Day.
These people are making a difference in a big way. The work they are doing fosters love and kindness in our world and for that I am truly thankful.
I hope you will join this year’s World Singing Day social music initiative. Learn more here.
Calling all humans!* (*Don't worry if you can't sing.)
No audition, no solos, no sheet music, no worries…just fun!
