Music: Count Us In Celebration Day

We celebrated the annual Music: Count Us In Celebration Day on Thursday 5th November. EHPS students joined together via video conference with thousands of other students in schools across Australia to perform the 2020 song 'You Won't Bring Us Down'.

Music: Count Us In (MCUI) is internationally recongised as the world's largest school music initiative. The annual program song, 'You Won't Bring Us Down', was written by four students from around Australia in collaboration with the MCUI Ambassador John Foreman and the 2020 Program Mentor, Lior. 

The program culminates in the National Celebration Day when more than half a million students sing the same song, on the same day, at the same time. Students also used Auslan sign language, and some students also used their own percussion instruments, while others performed body percussion patterns to keep in time with the song. It was a wonderful musical celebration!
