A First, Second, and Third from Heart of the City

First: a thank you! To everyone who sponsored, performed, or cheered at our Break the Ice “Friendraiser” at Studio 96 on March 12: thanks for making the night so special! The performances by F&M and Tyler Butler were wonderful, and it was especially great to see these esteemed local musicians in a venue where you can hear a pin drop from across the room. If you missed the show, no worries: CJSR will be airing the concert in the near future, and NTT Films captured the magic on video.

Second: an invite! Heart of the City could not happen without its amazing volunteers. So, we are having a recruitment rally for folks interested in helping at the festival this year. As any good recruiter knows, music helps a party, so it will also be an open mic! Hosted at the Carrot Café at 9351 118 Avenue, it will be from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday April 10. Our MC will be David Shepherd, MLA for Edmonton-Centre. Hope to see you there!

Third: a reminder! Everyone is welcome at our festival in Giovanni Caboto Park on June 4 and 5!

Rylan is a board member with Heart of the City.
