25th Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts – April 2, 2012

silver anniversaryThis year marks the silver anniversary of the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts, a fun evening celebrating and showcasing local artists. Tickets are on sale now for the event which takes place on April 2, 2012 at the Winspear Centre.

Join us for our 25th anniversary of celebrating the arts in Edmonton! That’s right, we have been showcasing Edmonton’s artists for a quarter of a century, and we are marking this milestone with the most exciting show yet! Get ready for an evening of awards an an eclectic mix of performances that will awe and inspire you.

Sharon and I have attended for the past four years because we love getting introduced to local artists. The mix of performances also makes attending worthwhile – you get a nice cross-section of the local arts scene. For instance, this year’s performers include Tommy Banks, Christian Hansen and the Autistics, Colleen Brown, Citie Ballet, Sandro Dominelli, and the cast of Caution: May Contain Nuts.

Check out my previous recaps if you’re looking to get a sense of what the evening is all about: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008.

This year proceeds from the event will support the Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton’s Centre for Art & Music, which mentors the next generation of musicians in our city, with a special focus on youth at risk.
