CIBC Confed Centre Presents

TheĀ Confederation Centre of the Arts is very pleased to announce two special live performance programs coming soon to Downtown Charlottetown.

 

The first is an open-air concert series taking root in the Centreā€™s outdoor amphitheatreā€”the venue known to most as the regular home for the TD Young Company. For this new series, entitled Set in the Sun, a different Island songwriter or instrumental duo will perform a live concert on site, every Wednesday and Saturday at 5 p.m.

Presented by program sponsor Honibe, Set in the Sun is part of a slate of programming being unrolled this summer under the banner, CIBC Confed Centre Presents. Another major announcement will be coming later this month around a digital series.

Set in the Sun is a 12-part live series that highlights a thrilling cross-section of local talent, ranging from fiddle music to classical, to folk, rock, and hip-hop. Seating will be limited to 40 people per concert, with parties of up to four staggered safely throughout the venue.

ā€œThe Centre team has been thrilled to reopen to the public over the past month, and now we invite our patrons to enjoy live music with us in a safe and relaxed setting,ā€ shares Adam Brazier, artistic director. ā€œThis diverse series presents some of finest emerging and established songwriters from across the Island.ā€

The July 22 concert will feature Island troubadour Scott Parsons, followed by modern traditional music group Inn Echo on July 25. In August, patrons can enjoy concerts from rising-star hip-hop performer Vince the Messenger, songwriter Rachel Beck, and more. Set in the Sun is programmed by Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre.

Tickets for the Scott Parsons and Inn Echo concerts are available now, online at confederationcentre.com, or by calling the box office at 902.566.1267 or toll-free 1.800.565.0278, Monday to Friday 9-5 p.m. Concerts are offered free-of-charge; however, a ticket is required to reserve a patronā€™s space. Patrons can book a max of four tickets per show.

Performance dates and ticketing will be made available each Wednesday throughout the series, revealing the performersā€™ names for the following weekā€™s two concerts and allowing patrons to book their seats.
