Music Monday celebrated in Charlottetown

There's more music than normal on P.E.I., as schools and educators help celebrate the national Music Monday.

Thousands of Canadians sang together at 12:30 p.m. (EST) to raise awareness for music education programs.

It's year 13 for the event, which was created by the Coalition for Music Education in Canada.

Last year the event was based in Summerside, and this year, Charlottetown is the key community.

Students gathered at Trinity United Church to join in on the Music Monday anthem, Sing It Together.

They were joined by the national president and chair of the Coalition for Music Education, Eric Favreau.

He chose to be in Charlottetown rather than Ottawa because of the continued impressive turnout for Music Monday on the Island, and the year-round work in music education.

Other events through the day were held at Province House, Murphy's Community Centre, St. Paul's Anglican Church, St. Dunstan's Basilica and Receiver Coffee.
