The 2023–2024 LIVE @ the Centre season continues this month with musicians, comedians, and more on stage in Charlottetown. 

Matt Dusk brings his Frank Sinatra tribute show to the Centre on November 2. An energetic show with all the production value of a Broadway musical, he takes the audience on a musical journey through Frank Sinatra’s career . Expect best-known classics from the Great American Songbook as well as a few surprises.

On November 15, internationally acclaimed performer Jeremy Dutcher returns to the stage with a new band and pivotal new music. A Wolastoqiyik member of the Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, his music is unapologetically playful in its incorporation of classical influences, full of reverence for the traditional songs of his home, and teeming with the urgency of modern-day resistance.

Courtesy of Yuk Yuk’s Comedy, laugh along with Peter Anthony on November 18 at The Mack. Originally from Pictou, NS, Peter is a Canadian Comedy Award winner who has appeared at the Just for Laughs Festival, Halifax Comedy Festival, and on MTV, MuchMusic, and CBC’s The Debaters. His stand-up routine is full of East Coast references that will leave you in stitches.

Ukrainian “ethno-chaos” band DakhaBrakha will bring their world of unexpected new music to the Centre on November 24. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, and Ukrainian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a transnational sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.

The two choirs at Confederation Centre of the Arts will perform their first concerts of the season. Catch Confederation Singers on November 25 with Endless Song, and Confederation Centre Youth Chorus with Singing is My Superpower, on December 9—both in the Sobey Family Theatre. 

Looking ahead to December, Confederation Centre of the Arts will host holiday performances from Matt Andersen, Lennie Gallant, The East Pointers, and more. The Centre’s dance umbrella program will perform The Nutcracker in partnership with the PEI Symphony Orchestra. 

Tickets for all performances are on sale now and can be purchased online at confederationcentre.com, via phone at 1-800-565-0278, or in person at the Centre’s box office.
