Holly Arntzen’s music

Holly Arntzen is a seasoned singer-songwriter from Canada’s west coast who works with school choirs to produce highly effective environmental education recordings. These two well-produced albums are no exception. Winds of Change features catchy and clever tunes, such as “Arctic Dragonfly” and “Climate Beat Blues,” that focus on climate change. Salish Sea is named after the body of water comprising the Straits of Georgia and Juan de Fuca in the Pacific Northwest, and the inspiring songs on this CD address the environmental impact of this region’s growing human population. It comes as a standalone CD or packaged with the 108-page K-7 Salish Sea: A Handbook for Educators, which offers valuable ideas for field trips and activities that reinforce key concepts in the songs related to marine science and social studies. Although these resources would be of primary interest to those living in the Pacific Northwest, the quality of the music and activity ideas would make them great additions to any creative educator’s collection. The Salish Sea guide and CD are also available in French as La Mer des Salish.
