As we honour Canada 150, Charlottetown, the birthplace of confederation is getting ready for an “epic” day-long Music Monday celebration – “Music Monday In The Streets”.
There will be clinics, Jazz Improv with Rowan Fitzgerald, artwork created to music, multi-cultural presentations, and showcase performances. A march is planned up Great George Street to Provence House. Throughout the day, you will hear Aboriginal music, rock bands, jazz, folk and choristers.
Alexander Shelley, Music Director with the National Arts Centre Orchestra (NACO) will conduct the Singing Strings and a mass choir of over 700 singers as they perform the Music Monday Anthem, Sing It Together. On tour, with a performance that night at the Confederation Centre, some NACO musicians will also participate in clinics.
