-The season opens with Scott Parsons on October 15-
September 23, 2021 – LIVE @ The Centre makes its highly anticipated return to the Mainstage at Confederation Centre of the Arts this October with a diverse line-up that includes some of the region’s most talented and acclaimed artists. And this season the Centre will pay tribute to the Island’s frontline workers, who despite the risks, are keeping our province running through the pandemic.
“We are deeply grateful to the many thousands of Islanders who remain on the front lines as we continue our battle against COVID-19,” says Director of LIVE @ The Centre Darcy Campbell. “Frontline and Centre is a way to say thank you for their ongoing dedication, and we will be giving away a number of pairs of complimentary tickets to each of our LIVE @ The Centre performances this fall.”
Frontline workers can enter a draw via the Centre’s website for a chance to win a pair of tickets. Each draw will take place approximately one week prior to the specified show.
This season gets underway on October 15 with a performance from one of the Island’s most cherished and respected singer songwriters Scott Parsons. A true veteran of the Island’s music scene, Parsons combines his incredible musical talents with messages of social justice and inter-cultural understanding.
October and November will also see performances from Juno award winner Rose Cousins, Classic Albums Live and their rendition of the Tom Petty Classic Damn the Torpedoes, Menopause the Musical, Vince the Messenger, and guitar virtuoso Don Ross.
Then, over the holidays, LIVE @ The Centre kicks into high gear with special Christmas themed events including performances by Lennie Gallant, Matt Andersen, and The East Pointers, as well as LIVE’s traditional choral performances with the Confederation Singers and the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus, and dance umbrella’s rendition of The Nutcracker.
“Our fall line-up truly has something for everyone,” says Campbell. “Whether you enjoy pop, rock, traditional, choral, dance, musical theatre or classical music, we’ve crafted a line-up that touches on a wide variety of musical styles and diverse talents from across the region and beyond.”
