Make any day CANADA DAY at your school

One of the most in-demand performers in Canadian elementary schools. Michael’s CANADA IS FOR KIDS show is a performance of songs and stories that help students and adults alike appreciate some of the many things that make this country the best place on earth to live. Michael has given more than 5,000 of these shows across the country. He has composed and recorded songs for SESAME STREET and PBS/NOVA and is the former co-host of the CTV Children’s program STORYTIME.

Performance Name:

Michael Mitchell – CANADA IS FOR KIDS (live stream version)

Performance Description:

What makes Canada the best place on earth to live? Michael weaves a tapestry of things that make this country and its people so special: history; geography; ‘quirky’ characters; and amazing facts. No two shows are completely alike because the song selections are chosen in advance in collaboration with the teacher who is hosting the Livestream broadcast into their classroom. Every song is augmented with a video component that further enhances the performance.

The complimentary Teaching Kit sent in advance of the show is packed with resources that you can use not only to prepare for the Livestream performance but also to augment your other music and social studies units throughout the year. These resources include 25 x mp3 song files, music and colouring books, and other useful and fun tools. A YouTube video will soon be available that will demonstrate how the show unfolds and how to easily integrate it into your classrooms.

Thanks to live streaming, you can choose to book your show(s) months in advance or, in some cases, the very next day! Michael can do a morning show in Surrey, BC and an afternoon show in Ottawa, Ontario. Ahh, the wonders of technology!

Grade Suitability:

K-8, but each show will be individually crafted to suit the ages of the students in attendance at each session.

Cost:

First show on any day – $400 plus GST

Additional shows that same day – $300 each plus GST

Tech/Set up Requirements:

The Michael Mitchell CANADA IS FOR KIDS show is live streamed directly into your classrooms via ZOOM. You can then project the concert onto a SmartBoard, AV projector, or any other system you have on hand. Simply use your internet connection to receive a real-time concert into one or more classrooms. Students can connect from home in the event that they are not present in class.

Audience Capacity:

No limit. Depending on your school equipment, you can have multiple classes log in to the live stream presentation. However, we recommend that you consider separate presentations for K-2, 3-5, or any other combination that limits the attendee age spread to two or three years.

Program Duration:

45 minutes is recommended. Almost any variation can be accommodated depending on the needs of the school.
