In the Music Room
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Music is a great thing to have in your life,” is Sandi Clark’s simple philosophy for teaching music for little ones. Tucked behind Sandi’s Kensington home is an outbuilding that might once have been a garage and that has definitely housed an insurance office and even, at one time, a pony. These days, local children and parents know it as a music room,

I’m in the family business,” stained glass artist Susana Rutherford has been known to say drolly, when asked what she does. “I’ve often joked to people I wanted to be an accountant—but I wasn’t a rebel.”

Despite growing up in a family that included visual artists Ambika Gail Rutherford and Erica Rutherford, Susana wasn’t always encouraged to choose a life in the

Mr. Go-getter

No reclining armchair or closed-in desk in Melvin Ford’s office—no time to sit. The manager of the King’s Playhouse is busy and plans to be even busier building up the repertoire and reputation of what he calls “the busiest theatre on PEI.” He says, “It feels like [summer] doesn’t end. We have 14 shows before Christmas. We’ve had 64 different live productions

Staying Busy
Profile by Jane Ledwell

This summer, if you pulled up to a drive-thru to buy a burger, you could expect to be asked, “Want fries with that?” If you pull in to a concert to hear a favourite fiddler or band, expect to be asked, “Want Jon Matthews with that?” The busy musician, producer, and Magic 93.1 broadcaster has only had six nights off since mid-June. “It’s one of those cases that

Fleet of Foot

He may be billed as “the fastest feet on PEI,” but just-turned-16 step-dancer Cameron Francis is happy to be eligible for a beginner’s permit to drive. The busy performer wants to give his parents a break from driving from their Lady Fane farm to dance lessons, year-round ceilidhs, and summer performances at the College of Piping in Summerside.

Banks, Brittany

The Apprentice
Profile by Jane Ledwell

If you’d asked me a year ago, I definitely didn’t see myself at UPEI,” says Brittany Banks, a dancer and singer already well-known to Island musical theatre audiences even though she has just completed her first year of studying music at the university. “I saw myself AWAY,” she admits.

The Music Within
Profile by Jane Ledwell

When things don’t work out chronologically as they should, what is meant to happen has to happen at some point. People I know who are happy and fulfilled are doing what they are meant to,” says singer, music teacher, and musical director Shirley Anne Cameron, philosophically.

“I went back to university when I was older,” she says, “I had started, but I went

Real Live Experience
Profile by Jane Ledwell

April usually finds René Hurtubise and his love in Spain, where they exercise a Spanish vocabulary based on food and directions. This April, though, the educator, singer, and classical music volunteer will travel instead to Buenos Aires—thanks to a friend’s invitation, a dip in ticket price, and intrigue about Eva and Juan Peròn. The trip will follow up
