LIVE @ The Centre makes its return to the Mainstage at Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown this October. With a diverse line-up that includes some of the region’s most talented and acclaimed artists, the fall season 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 Confederation 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.

The season gets underway on October 15 with a performance from Island singer-songwriter, Scott Parsons. A veteran of the Island’s music scene, Parsons combines his musical talent with messages of social justice and inter-cultural understanding.
