Last week I heard that Tunes at Noon - the free lunchtime summer concert series in Grand Parade — was facing extinction due to budgetary concerns. I emailed councillor Dawn Sloane to learn more and earlier this week she happily reported that council CAO Richard Butts had put up $7,000 — the amount needed to save the program — prior to the budget vote. Says Sloane: “This not only promotes our awesome local talent, but allows the students from the Centre of Arts and Technology the ability to get hands-on experience with setup and build relationships with the artists.” A call for artists is due out soon.
