The Manitoba Orff Chapter is pleased to present Play! Celebrating Elementary Music Education in Manitoba. Play! is hosted biannually by the MOC and is a day of children’s performances to celebrate and advocate for elementary music education in Manitoba. This year’s event will take on a new, virtual format and you are invited to get involved!

This year, we invite teachers and students from across Manitoba to join our virtual Orff ensemble. Teachers will help students to learn their part and to create a video that will be submitted to the project. The video will premier in June 2021.

How to Participate:

  • The score can be viewed here. The piece will be performed at 95 BPM.
  • Students will learn one of the instrumental parts or will create movement for the music.
  • To participate, complete this form by March 15. Each school is limited to 2 student submissions. After completing the form, you will receive a package including student media releases, a practice track, and detailed instructions for filming and submitting videos.
  • Practice with your students and submit your videos by May 1.


  • This project is intended for individual student participation, and not a class project, with the exception of movement, which could feature a small group of students.

  • Teachers will practice with students so that they can comfortably perform their part along with a practice track. This will ensure that all of the audio parts line up in the final video.
