Nominees and Performers Announced for Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts Awards
The City of St. Albert is pleased to announce the nominees and performers for the 10th annual Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts Awards. This year, the City received 41 nominations in six categories: Arts Champion, Emerging Artist, Established Artist, Excellence in Arts Teaching, Youth Artist and Lifetime Achievement in the Arts. Lewis Lavoie will receive the 2019 Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award in recognition of the significant regional and international contributions he has made to the arts. All other recipients will be announced at the event. See the full list of nominees.
Some exciting performers have been scheduled to honour the artists, entertain the audience and ensure the event is a memorable tribute to the arts. Acts include Ari Zak, DanceCo, Travis Matthews and Mac Daddy. Zach Polis will serve as the event emcee.
Ari is a poet from St. Albert who has been writing for the past five years. Her poems document self growth and reflection in dark and poignant ways. DanceCo’s dancers are continually inspired and challenged to learn in a warm and enjoyable environment. Travis Matthews has hosted several open stages at The Dirtbag Cafe and performed solo at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival. Mac Daddy performs Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits from the ‘70s and ‘80s, and even touches on their early years as a British blues band.
