Capturing the North in music

The National Arts Centre Orchestra has been travelling across the North, performing in Iqaluit,Yellowknife and Whitehorse.

The program includes several pieces, including a work that was composed to try and capture the spirit of the region, by mixing Inuit throat singing with classical music.

Alexina Louie is the composer of the piece, entitled Take The Dog Sled, and she's travelling with the orchestra.
