The Flin Flon Arts Council held their annual meeting Monday night. Board President Sheri Pearson reported it has been a very busy year with lots of performances, opportunities and new talents emerging which is a trend which is exciting to watch as they seem to continually build on past performance seasons.
Highlights were reported from their eleven standing committees and twelve organizations that fall under their umbrella including four sold out performances of Mama Mia and the Art Council receiving the Manitoba Arts Council Rural Recognition Award.
Pearson mentioned several events for the upcoming season including their opening performance from Woody Holler, Ham Sandwich’s production of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre performance of the New Canadian Curling Club, the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and in April the Community Choir will travel back to New York to Carnegie Hall to perform Carmina Burana.
And on Monday night in recognition of her 25 years on the Board Linda Allen was awarded a life time honorary membership in the Arts Council.
