A year in the planning and his last public event before returning Earth, astronaut Chris Hadfield today will sing along with students gathered at the Ontario Science Centre for Music Monday. They will perform Is Somebody Singing (I.S.S.), a song Hadfield co-wrote with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, which was commissioned by the Coalition for Music Education and CBC Music.
The event which begins at 12:00 p.m. ET will be webcast on the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) web site.
Along with the expected hundred of students at the Ontario Science Centre, hundreds of thousands of students across Canada are taking part in Music Monday to raise awareness about the importance of music education.
CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen will be present at the Ontario Science Centre and will moderate the students’ questions to Commander Hadfield. For a complete program of the performances, please visit the Music Monday website.
