In eight days, Thursday June 27, the Olympic flame will cross the Moselle departmentand the cauldron will be lit at the end of the day in Metz. For this very special Olympic year, many Moselle schoolchildren learned the song “Move!”. It was imagined by the three educational advisors in musical education from National Education in Moselle, in particular the Messin Aurélien Meyer, who wrote the song. Gérald Delique, musician and founder of studio Under the Vines in Metz, ensured its production, in partnership with INECC Mission Voix Lorraine, resource center for the development of vocal practice. This song, “Move!” became the Olympic anthem for schoolchildrenwell beyond the borders of the Moselle.

Closing of a school year under the sign of the Olympic Games

This Tuesday, almost 600 children from the four corners of the Moselle strolled to music in the streets of Metz, before meeting at Place d’Armes, to sing and dance this anthem together. “This song is so cool, we learned it with our teacher and now we know it by heart!“, proclaim the students of the Paul Langevin school in Moyeuvre-Grande. “She talks about sports, what can happen at school, and friendship. It makes you want to dance, it lives up to its name!“.

Fatima, from the Maurice Barrès school in Metz, explains how she and her classmates made instruments for beating time : “Percussions made from cans, bottles and laundry detergent cans!“. The children from the Victor Hugo school in Thionville also appreciate it: “We rehearsed a lot after recess!” Their teacher Julie agrees: “It was great, it really makes you want to dance. And I danced with them! The educational advisors ensured.”

A song that is exported beyond the Moselle

Aurélien Meyer, the composer of the song, is obviously delighted by this enthusiasm, and see the children have appropriated its words and rhythms : “With my colleagues, we produce these music education resources each year with passion, to support teachers in their classrooms. But it’s true that this song exceeded our expectations! It is spread throughout France and even in Europe: it has been translated into German and it is used in Swiss classes. It’s nice, and it makes you want to continue!“.

Published last winter, the video on YouTube now exceeds 700,000 views.
