Credit Union sup­ports sum­mer con­cert se­ries

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - WELLING­TON

The Coopéra­tive de développe­ment cul­turel et pat­ri­mo­nial de Mont-Carmel Ltée has started its main an­nual ac­tiv­ity, the Sun­day night sum­mer con­cert se­ries that runs July and Au­gust at the Mont-Carmel Com­mu­nity Hall.

Not only does this con­cert se­ries pro­vide typ­i­cal Aca­dian en­ter­tain­ment for tourists and lo­cals, but it en­ables the au­di­ence to dis­cover and re­dis­cover some of our Is­land artists.

Re­cently, the pre­sent­ing spon­sor, the Évangé­line-Cen­tral Credit Union, made a do­na­tion to the co-op for the con­certs.

To date, the con­cert se­ries has fea­tured per­for­mances by over 500 artists (mu­si­cians, singers and story-tell­ers) as well as 150 dancers.

This coopéra­tive has also had an im­por­tant im­pact on the hir­ing and pre­sen­ta­tion of our Is­land artists. Since the be­gin­ning of its con­cert se­ries, the coopéra­tive has at­tracted over 7,000 spec­ta­tors.

It is the most pop­u­lar con­cert se­ries of its kind dur­ing the sum­mer on Prince Ed­ward Is­land and, since its de­but in 2008, has rapidly taken its right­ful place within the artis­tic and cul­tural com­mu­nity of our province.
