Music Monday - Special Performance

Posted by Bill van Asperen

Communities from across Canada will join together on "Music Monday" to sing the same song at the same time. It's an effort to promote music education. A special performance is taking place in Charlottetown this afternoon at Trinity United Church. It features a four-hundred voice children's choir representing nine schools, the Montague Senior High School Choir, and the Montague Intermediate School Band. Parts of the performances from each province will  be live-streamed on the web.

This morning 11 students from Stratford Elementary who are in the choir, and we also have Choir director Kelsea MacLean, and one of the event co-ordinators Don Quarles.
