It’s my blog and I’ll brag if I want to, brag if I want to, brag if I want to. You would brag too if it happened to you-oo!! ( Sung to the tune of Lesley Gore’s It’s My Party).
Happy Canada Day to my Canadian readers.
The video above is a performance of the Timmins Youth Singers directed by yours truly in 1993 at the Toronto Skydome.
This musical event was a source of enormous pride for me, as it marked our 15th Anniversary as a choral group. We were in Toronto as guest performers at the International Choral Festival. What a great time in my life!
Now, unfortunately, I didn’t have time to edit this video so the American National Anthem is performed prior to the Canadian one. But, hey, Independence Day is In a few days later, so let’s do a multiple tribute thing.
If that isn’t your fancy, then scroll to the 2:20 mark and you will be treated to the Canadian National Anthem.
Hope you are having a fantastic holiday weekend celebrating your Canadian heritage. Share your stories in the comments section or – better yet – add your favorite video links of other great Canadian National Anthem performances.
