Today, we acknowledge Ninette Babineau.
Music has been her life and many of you know her through her work as an arts education consultant, musician, adjudicator, clinician, teacher, mentor and performer. And some of you might have even had violin lessons with her. Ninette Babineau’s career has spanned over five decades. Her résumé is a long list of accomplishments, experiences, and impressive affiliations.
What many of you might not know is that Ninette Babineau was a Talent Trust board member for many years and helped shape the Talent Trust. Since stepping down from the Talent Trust she has been one of our leading donors and supporters.
We honoured Ninette at the 2021 Special Awards Ceremony in December by adding her officially back into the Talent Trust family as an Honorary Lifetime Director.
Thank you, Ninette!
“Through varying roles, I have enjoyed a long association with the Nova Scotia Talent Trust and have watched with delight as it has developed into a significant support organization for our young and emerging artists. The range of fields of endeavour has continued to expand to meet the demands of the continuing and changing world of today’s artist.
We enjoy the presence of hard working and talented young people in this province who are contributing to the cultural life of their respective communities. Many are preparing for a life in the arts under the guidance of dedicated teachers and mentors. They deserve our support.
I am pleased and honoured to have been invited to join the Talent Trust Board once again." States Ninette Babineau.
