CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – With love in the air, Sobeys Live @ the Centre serves up the ever popular Valentine's Cabaret next week.
Vocalists Catherine O'Brien and Joey Kitson come together with a trio of Don Fraser on piano, Deryl Gallant on upright bass, and Alan White on drums for this Feb. 14 tradition. The musical union sets the scene for a memorable night of romance, humour, and classic love songs.
“The Valentine’s Cabaret is a night like no other, one accented by the swinging sounds from another era that is sure to entertain, surprise, and romance,” offers Fraser, director of the Centre's Choral Music Program.
“February 14 is an evening out at The Mack where you will hear a varied selection of classics from the American Songbook.”
The jazz trio will back Kitson and O'Brien across two rollicking sets of ballads, blues tunes, and pop standards, including “My Funny Valentine,” “Time after Time,” “Skylark,” and “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You.” Other standouts include “You’d Be So Nice to Come Home to” and “Fly Me to the Moon.”
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at The Mack. For tickets contact the Confederation Centre's box office at (902) 566-1267, toll-free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at confederationcentre.com.
