New Lake Winnipeg resource for music educators
LWF’s education program assists teachers to engage students on water stewardship issues and inspire youth action. We offer in-class presentations and funding for water-related learning, plus opportunities to collaborate with individual educators and/or schools on more customized partnerships and initiatives.
We are excited to launch a new resource for music educators, in recognition that water can be explored beyond the science curriculum.
Rise and Shine, Lake Winnipeg, is an original song co-written by Rod Palson and Lorne Martin, residents of Riverton and Husavik, Manitoba, respectively. LWF is offering choral score of this song at no cost to music educators and choral directors.
We hpoe this song can be used to start a conversation with youth about why Lake Winnipeg is important – and why it’s worth protecting.
Rise and Shine, Lake Winnipeg is available in four keys to accommodate a variety of applications and accompaniments. Each score also contains a simplified lead sheet featuring only lyrics, main vocal melody and chords – ideal for pared-down arrangements.
All four versions are available for free download here.
Hard copies are also available by request. Please note, quantities of hard copies are extremely limited and will be offered only while supplies last.
