WonderFest was founded by local artists Arlene Paculan and Kat Leonard. A graduate of the Randolph Academy, Arlene is a talented singer-songwriter whose brand of soulful jazzy-pop has been embraced by CBC Radio 1, and has earned great recognition in the local arts community. Kat is a talented multimedia singer/songwriter/comedian and a graduate of The Second City Conservatory. Her feisty and dynamic writing and performances are both heartfelt and hilarious, leaving you with the drunken joy of a sugar rush.
