Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre Presents ‘In Remembrance’ at Historic Trinity United
Annual Remembrance Day concert will be performed by the Confederation Singers and Confederation Centre Youth Chorus
The Confederation Singers and the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus will present a recital of choral music and readings in honour of the nation’s war veterans. Also marking the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War. In Remembrance takes place Sunday, November 11, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown.
“In Remembrance offers an evening of thought-provoking poetry complemented by appropriate selections of choral music; one reflects and heightens the other,” offers Don Fraser, director of choral music at Confederation Centre. “Much of the poetry is from the First World War, and included in the music is a Canadian choral setting of the famous In Flanders Fieldspoem.”
The concert will also feature the selection ‘I’m Dreaming of Home’, which members of the Youth Chorus performed at the dedication ceremony for the newly restored Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France on April 9, 2007, the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
Other featured music selections include: Eric Whitacre’s ‘Sleep’; ‘In Remembrance’ from Canadian composer Eleanor Daley; ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Randall Thompson; the beautiful ‘Pie Jesu’ by Fauré; and ‘Ubi Caritas’ by Ola Gjeilo.
Tickets for the annual In Remembrance performance are $15 and are available at the door or via the Confederation Centre’s box office. Patrons can also order at 902-566-1267, toll free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at.

“What’s the buzz, tell me what’s happenin”… iconic rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar opens June 7 at The 2018 Charlottetown Festival.
If you are one of the thousands of long-time fans of the musical, you will be interested in hearing more about the back-story of the origins and shaping of the ground-breaking production. If you didn’t live through the 70s belting out the soundtrack, this is a wonderful opportunity to hear more about this timeless, universal story with a modern twist that explores the last week of Jesus’ life as seen through the troubled eyes of Judas Iscariot.
Please join The Charlottetown Festival’s Artistic Director, Adam Brazier, on April 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Confederation Centre Library for “Director’s Cut – Jesus Christ Superstar.”
Adam will discuss the production’s history, rich themes, and the challenges he faced adapting Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical for the Homburg stage.
Admission is free. Please RSVP by emailing Kara Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watermark Theatre is a perfect training ground; small enough to nurture and large enough to have processes and policies in place. All sets, costumes and props are realized on site and production standards are high. Though there are many theatre training institutions in Canada there are very few internships available. Hands-on experience and training under a good mentor is one of the best ways to learn and grow.
5 Internships available in: Stage Management or Carpentry/Tech or Wardrobe or Props/Scenic Art or Arts Administration Assistant
Funding models may require either an open EI claim or eligibility to open an EI claim or students between the ages of 18-30 returning to school post internship.
Blue Suede Shoes opened things up. The set was a border of light featuring a recording studio full of gold records & vintage instruments. I couldn’t miss this Opening Night & I was not disappointed with this picture perfect Charlottetown Festival musical celebration last Friday!
Million Dollar Quartet had a great storyline centred around Sam Phillips’ (played by Stephen Guy-McGrath) Sun Records, 4 legends from the 50’s and loyalty to the man who got them to the top of the game when Rock n’ Roll was in its infancy. A young up and coming Jerry Lee Lewis (Jefferson McDonald) was a Real Wild Child and was my personal favorite of the Quartet. He was outspoken and matched his over the edge comedy with high adrenaline musical portrayals of his best known songs.
The King of Rockabilly, Carl Perkins (Ed Murphy) had something to prove and played some awesome licks on the guitar, Man in Black Johnny Cash (Greg Gale) walked the line with a heavy heart, & The King Elvis Presley, (who was accompanied by his girl Dyanne (Alicia Toner), was the guest of honor.
Some of my favorite performances included Who Do You Love? By Perkins, That’s All Right by Presley, Fever by Dyanne, I Walk the Line by Cash, & of course, Great Balls of Fire by Lewis.
The players had the moves, the look, and most notably, the musical ability to make me believe I was transported in time to Memphis for an inside look at a session like no other. Great tunes, and a fast paced sentimental journey music fans of any generation can appreciate in a 1 act masterpiece. It is definitely happening at The Confederation Centre in Charlottetown in 2017!

We loved Robyn Hood! Every year we go to the Christmas shows and have always enjoyed each and every one! Mamma Mia, Anne of GG, Alice Through the Looking Glass, of course, were amazing too!
Great performances, witty and fun! We are so fortunate to have Confederation Centre here in Charlottetown!
