2019 Program Song

Program Song

The 2019 Program Song was called ‘We Are’. The 2020 Program Song will be written during the first half of 2020.

Creating the Song: 2019

MCUI 2019 kicked off with the Songwriting Workshop in early May taking place at Church Street Studios in Sydney. Student finalists Sawab Mlaih (NSW), Amber Farnan (QLD), Roan Nair (VIC) and Brady Cavanagh (NSW) were selected from across the country to collaborate with our music professionals to create this year’s MCUI song. During the Songwriting Workshop, students received expert guidance from award-winning producer John Foreman OAM, the program’s ambassador and the program’s music mentor, Jack River. Meet the Student songwriters here.

Recording the Song: 2019

Students from all over Sydney worked together in recording ‘We Are’. These students were directed by John Foreman OAM and mentored by industry instrumental musicians.
