The Resonate Theme

In April 2016, a group of Prairie Spirit teachers co-created the Resonate theme. This has become the song that embodies the philosophy and spirit of the Resonate Music Conference, now in its third year. In March 2016, the song was launched at the first ever ‘Resonate Junior’, a one day event for younger children. The song reflects the key messages of Resonate. That all of us are musicians, that music is a vital part of our lives, and that music creates community.
The song came out of a PD session for teachers at Resonate 2016. Prairie Spirit Teacher, Wendy Crawford, collaborated with composer and arranger Professor Allan Giilliand to put together the song, which was performed for the first time later that day by the educators attending the conference. Wendy later penned the lyrics and the song was recorded over several months in the winter of 2017.
