27th Annual Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts

It was an incredible honour to have the opportunity to produce the 27th Annual Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts. A dream come true for Catch the Keys! Our thanks to PACE and the supportive events committee for their unwavering belief in us; our hard-working, rock-steady production crew Holly, Kerry, Al, Maggie, Julie, Lana and Katie for holding it down back stage and in the lobby; Production World for their unrivalled technical expertise; Matt Schuurman for making video design dreams come true; Elm Catering for their delicious culinary artistry; the generous MCA 2014 production, award, entertainment, visual art, and media sponsors; and of course the incredible artists, nominees and nominators who made the night possible! Congratulations to all the nominees, recipients and Edmonton’s arts community!
