Step into the multicultural world of Music Mosaic featuring some highly accomplished Music PEI Week award nominees: Fayo, Sirène & Matelot (Lennie Gallant and Patricia Richard), SOPA World Music Ensemble, Vishtèn, and special guests. Fayo is a french singer-songwriter by the name of Mario Leblanc. Residing in Mont Carmel, Fayo writes and sings in chiac, a bilingual dialect mixing french, english, and old Acadian words.

Lennie Gallant and Patricia Richard formed the duo Sirène & Matelot and released their self-titled debut album in 2019. With Sirène & Matelot, they wanted to explore songwriting that reflects not only their roots and influences but also their concerns about the current state of the world. Their voices blend seamlessly and their melodies reach beyond language barriers. The Holland College School of Performing Arts (SoPA) World Music Ensemble are students in the popular performing arts program in Charlottetown. They will showcase a variety of different musical genres and instrumentation. For over a decade, the Acadian trio Vishtèn has dazzled audiences with its fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibility and indie-folk influences.

Life of Elf

December 13, 2019 at 7:00pm at The Guild

Based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. A title known the world over, Elf The Musical JR.is a must see holiday musical.

Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit, Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace his or her ”inner elf”
