CHARLOTTETOWN – This fall, winter, and spring the Island’s finest entertainment can be found live at Confederation Centre.
From summer’s last few days straight through to the spring thaw, a suite of comedy, dance, choral music, French programming, family entertainment, and more is all live on five splendid stages – the Homburg Theatre, The Mack, Studio 1, the Kirk of St. James, and Trinity United.
The 2013-14 calendar includes an enchanting evening from Juno-winning songwriter David Myles; a rock’n’roll recital of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours from returning favourites Classic Albums Live; a lively afternoon of singing and dancing with Dora the Explorer; a classic holiday production starring Wade Lynch; six inspiring seasonal concerts from the Choral Music Programme, and much, much more.
Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre launches on Friday, Sept. 27 with an intimate evening at The Mack featuring the pride of P.E.I. – singer-songwriter Tim Chaisson.
In 2012, the multi-instrumentalist released his fifth album, The Other Side, a pop record woven with Maritime and folk influences that picked up a 2013 ECMA and several Music P.E.I. awards.
Since then, Chaisson hasn’t stopped, hitting #1 on the MuchMoreMusic Countdown, and venturing to Australia for three solo tours.
“We are excited to be able to offer something for all Islanders and visitors this season,” says Darcy Campbell, director of Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre. “2013-14 extends what Confederation Centre has been offering in recent years by presenting a classical music performance, an evening of storytelling, and many nights featuring some of the best live music our country has to offer.”
