Join the festivities this season as we celebrate our twelfth edition of LiveArt.  The Gala includes VIP reception, 6:00PM to 7:00 PM, before the show and the Donor Party after the show, 9:00 PM to 11:30PM, all located inside the Townsend Center.  Gold Circle seating is located on the Orchestra pit at cafe tables and includes wine service before the show.  This year, LiveArt will debut the LiveArt Casino in the spirit of The Sands Hotel and Casino from the 1960s.  Join today as a donor to experience the full evening.


For one night only, Friday, January 25th, LiveArt 2019 presents 1966: A Night at the Sands starring Matt Dusk and his Big Band.  Take a journey down memory lane with Award-Winning, Multi-Platinum crooner Dusk as he pays homage to the Chairman of the Board.  Matt Dusk is one of Canada’s most beloved male vocalists, forging a career in music that has resulted in ten critically-acclaimed studio albums and four Juno award nominations.  Dusk has been awarded three Gold albums, two Platinum albums and three number one radio hits.  An alumnus of the St. Michael’s Choir School, Dusk studied under the legendary Oscar Peterson at York University.  With new charts by Grammy-Award winning arrangers Pat Williams and Sammy Nestico, Dusk brings this elegant era back to life with classics such as Come Fly With Me, I've Got You Under My Skin, Fly Me To The Moon, andOne For My Baby.  His seemingly effortless way of taking audiences back in time with his sophisticated sound is exactly what makes Matt Dusk just as timeless as the hits he sings.

And then, on Saturday, March 16 LiveArt: Family Night presents The Corner of Broadway and Main Street starring Voctave.  An eleven member a cappella group, Voctave is known for their gorgeous performances of Disney and Broadway hits.  Members of Voctave have performed the world over and can be heard on countless recordings. The group has performed with Grammy, Dove and American Music Award recipients including Sandi Patty, Pentatonix’s Kirstin Maldonado, Mark Lowry, David Phelps & Jody McBrayer. Voctave has scored multiple number one songs and albums on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify and has ranked in the top 25 on Billboard Magazine’s charts. Between Facebook and YouTube, the group has received more than 100 million views on their videos.  While in town, Voctave will be hosting a choral clinic for local schools as part of the outreach this season.
