The holiday spirit is in full swing at Confederation Centre of the Arts this month with music and dance. 

The Centre’s dance umbrella program will perform The Nutcracker in partnership with the PEI Symphony Orchestra at the Sobey Family Theatre on December 2. This beloved holiday show is a reimagined telling of the classic story, and features music and whimsical elements that will delight the whole family. 

Confederation Centre Youth Chorus will perform at The Mack on December 9 with Singing is My Superpower. The show has seasonal themes of harvest and wintertime with songs of empowerment, inviting people to discover their own power to do good in the world.

There will also be a string of performances from Maritime favourites at the Sobey Family Theatre.

Matt Andersen performs his holiday show on December 14. In his own words, “I’ll bring some friends along to join in on the fun. We’ll play a mix of holiday tunes and originals to warm us up.”

The East Pointers return on December 16 with music from their new EP. The show will feature melodic, nostalgia-flared, folk experimental pop with the same driving trad hooks for which the band has become known and revered.

To wrap up the holiday season, Island music legend Lennie Gallant returns with his Christmas show on December 21. The Innkeeper’s Christmas is full of traditional and original Christmas songs, tales, laughs, and a few surprises that will put the audience in a Yuletide state of mind.  

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