Congratulations to Leah Hokanson, the recipient of the 2015 ARTY Award. Here’s why the GAC Board decided to honour Leah this year:
In Lulu Performing Arts’ tenth anniversary year, it seems fitting to honour Leah Hokanson for the enormous, creative contribution she makes on Gabriola, from her ten years volunteering at the helm of Lulu; directing the Gabriola Chamber Ensemble; performing solo, as an accompanist, and as part of numerous ensembles and groups; directing the women’s choir; working with singing groups in Nanaimo (including the Threshold Singers, who sing at the bedside of people in palliative care and hospice); teaching music; and a whole lot more! Thank you, Leah, for making Gabriola a more musical place!
Join us at the Artist Appreciation Street Party on Friday, April 10 to celebrate Leah, and all of the amazing artists on Gabriola Island.
