Catherine MacLellan headlining special Sunday symphony concert

The P.E.I. Symphony is celebrating Canada with its concert Sunday.

The program features Catherine MacLellan performing her songs with the orchestra. Her latest album was released in August and is called The Raven's Sun.

Two new works have also been composed to celebrate the 1864 Charlottetown Conference. The music was created by winners of a composition competition earlier this year.

"The mission was basically to create works for this event that celebrate Canada, our history and our culture and we had a great response from composers right across Canada and the winners were Garrett Krause and Alice Ho, who are top tier Canadian composers," said Dan Rowswell, the symphony’s president.

Rowswell says the compositions will go on to be performed all across Canada in the years leading up to the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017.

The concert is at the Confederation Centre of the Arts at 2:30 p.m.
