One Day: The Global Citizen Project

I am pleased to announce the world premiere of One Day: The Global Citizen Project. This video represents 9 months of work by my Cabot School middle school students during the 2010-2011 school year.  Featuring over 300 Vermont student musicians and singers (grades 1 – 12), the goal of the Global Citizen Project was to empower young people to make a difference in the world and affect change in their communities through the arts.

This video was produced with the intention of raising money for the Playing For Change Foundation, an organization that not only inspired our work but also supports music education projects in impoverished communities throughout the world.  After viewing the video please consider a donation to the Playing For Change Foundation in our name, The Global Citizen Project.

Be a Global Citizen!

    Brian, I love this! You are doing inspired and inspiring work with these kids, one project after another! This one is just lovely. I saw something else done by Playing for Change several years ago – what a wonderful concept! Thanks . . .
