Amy Sky Kicks Off HGJT's "Conversations"

Canadian singer-songwriter Amy Sky is kicking off Harold Green Jewish Theatre’s “Conversations on the Green” series for the 2010/2011 season.

Hosted by Canadian radio personality Ralph Benmergui (narrator of the recent Rosh Hashanah: The Day of Judgment documentary on VisionTV), each session features Benmergui in discussion with a prominent Canadian Jewish individual from the world of arts and/or politics on the role their Jewish background has played in their life and professional success. The one-on-one conversations take place in the Jane Mallett Theatre at the St. Lawrence Center for the Arts.

Sky, whose 1996 debut album Cool Rain was nominated for two Juno Awards, has released four albums since then (including Burnt by the Sun, Phenomenal Woman, With This Kissand a best-of collection), and has been nominated for multiple Canadian and international music awards. She received the first ever CRIA Applause award for her work on behalf of artist rights, and is an advocate for mental health issues.
