Karen Myatt Adds Her Voice to the Talent Trust Pop Up Series

In continued celebration of our 75th anniversary, former scholarship recipient Karen Myatt will perform a collection of contemporary tunes by Nova Scotia artists with musical accompaniment by Georges H├ębert.

12:30 p.m. 

Sackville Landing,
1655 Lower Water St
Halifax Waterfront
(next to the wave).


Free and open to the public.


The duo will be giving a classic jazz/blues twist to songs by Joel Plaskett, In Flight Safety, Erin Costelo, Sloan and more.

In her own word: 

“We are very happy to be part of the celebrations around the 75th anniversary of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust.

It’s an expensive business to develop your skills as a performing artist, with high costs for travel, post-secondary education, and purchasing quality instruments. For many young artists these costs can be a barrier to making the most of their talent.

My scholarship from the Nova Scotia Talent Trust enabled me to study with Janice Jackson (another Talent Trust recipient) and then go on to attend the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City.

Georges was not eligible for a Nova Scotia Talent Trust scholarship, having grown up in New Brunswick, but through his own path to excellence he knows all too well how much help a young musician needs.”
