International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield led a high-tech concert Monday, joining thousands of young voices from around the world — with his own voice from space.
Students, musicians and other participants across Canada and as far away as Singapore and Australia sang along with Hadfield, belting outISS — Is Somebody Singing?, the song Hadfield co-wrote with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, to celebrate the ninth edition Music Monday, an annual celebration put on by the Coalition for Music Education.
This year, the event was a partnership with CBC Music and the Canadian Space Agency.
While the shape of Monday didn’t allow us to join into the live singalong synced up with Commander Hadfield and the International Space Station, Gleneagle’s Concert Choir was able to offer our voices to “Is Somebody Singing,” one of the first “space-faring songs.”
The acoustics in the rehearsal space were too good not to share.
