Emma Gallant, one of P.E.I.’s three National Artists Program representatives at the February 2011 Canada Games, will perform and speak at the 18 January public meeting of Southern Kings Arts Council, in Montague.
Ms. Gallant, a Grade XII student at Morell, is an active member of the Island’s musical community, having launched her first CD, This Moment with You, two years ago. She performs regularly at concerts such as the Peake’s Quay Wharf’s Summer Concert Series, as well as numerous ceilidhs and benefits throughout the summer months. During the rest of the year, she tries to squeeze in opportunities to satisfy her fans between a full schedule of teaching both guitar and catechism, working at Atlantic Fitness East (Morell), and maintaining her academic studies as an Honour Roll student.
During her presentation at Southern Kings Arts Council, she will talk about her development as an artist, perform a few of her original songs, and respond to questions from fans and other Council members.
Southern Kings Arts Council is one of seven regional organizations supporting artists with Professional Development grants and working to promote awareness and appreciation of the arts on Prince Edward Island. The public is invited to “meet our artists” at evening meetings held on the third Tuesday of each month, commencing at 7:30 pm in the main floor boardroom of Active Communities, Inc., Main Street, Montague. Admission is free. For more information, contact SKAC President Fran Feher at 583-2888.
