Jennifer Gasoi to sing at Petits Anges de Wesley daycare
To celebrate its tenth anniversary, N.D.G.-based Daycare Petits Anges de Wesley will host a concert with children’s entertainer Jennifer Gasoi, who won the Grammy for best children’s album last year for Throw a Penny in the Wishing Well.
Although primarily a jazz artist, Gasoi also incorporates elements from many different genres in her music, including jazz, calypso, swing, gospel and bluegrass. In addition to her Grammy win, her long list of accolades include two Juno nominations, a 2004 Gold Parent’s Choice Award and a nomination for Outstanding Children’s Album at the 2004 Western Canadian Music Awards. She is a Montreal resident who frequently performs in her hometown and her concert is appropriate for all ages.
Garderie Les Petits Anges de Wesley is a non-profit, private daycare in N.D.G. for children ages 18 months to 5 years. As part of its anniversary celebrations, the daycare is raising funds for a sensory playground, with an aim to engage children to explore their surroundings using any of their five senses. For children with physical or mental challenges, the new playground would help improve socialization, communication, play and imagination.
The concert takes place Saturday, May 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wesley United Church and Community Centre. Tickets are $12 each, or $40 for a family pack for two adults and two children. Doors open at 10.30 a.m. Tickets are available online at gpa10.eventbrite.ca.
