The City of Charlottetown Planning and Heritage Department has created an exhibit to celebrate the history of music in the City. The display entitled, Picturing a City: Music, is part of the ongoing Picturing a City series that explores Charlottetown’s past through photos, stories and artifacts. It features historic images from the City’s Archival Collection and numerous other institutions and individuals, as well as a host of artifacts donated by the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation, the Native Council of PEI, Holland College and members of the community.

The display shows different types of music and musicals, how music was played in the past, and some of Charlottetown’s musical stars and venues. Visit the windows of the Planning and Heritage Department and learn about PEI ‘s very own 19th century Broadway Star, find out what a Kaju stick is used for, or learn what Charlottetown intermediate school Johnny Cash played at in the 1950s.

The Heritage staff wishes to thank all of the individuals who donated images and artifacts to make the department’s exhibits possible. These donations allow the history of the City to be shared with the public and promote the City’s heritage.

For more information on donating photos or allowing the City’s Heritage staff to scan images to be used in a future display, please contact the Planning and Heritage Department at 902-629-4051 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

All are welcome to come and view the exhibit in the storefront windows the Planning and Heritage Department at 233 Queen Street. The exhibit runs until July.
