Sobeys LIVE @ The Centre! returns with a bang this October and the line-up is chalk-full of dynamic performances that appeal to a wide range of Islanders, visitors, and beyond.
“This season truly has something for everyone,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre, a long-standing program of Confederation Centre of the Arts. “The program includes A-list musicians from a wealth of genres, family entertainment, contemporary dance, several first-time holiday concerts, and more!”
The 2019-20 line-up includes artists and performers that truly showcase the wealth of talent in this country, including Basia Bulat, Crash Test Dummies, and Steven Page, as well as local award-winning performers, The East Pointers, Catherine MacLellan, and Andrew Waite.
“Because LIVE is not a long run of single shows, a great variety can be enjoyed. So, take a chance on something new this season–there’s so much to explore!” adds Campbell.
