With one week left before the season opener of the Fall 2013 Season, it is timely to describe the full range of programming at the E. A. Rawlinson Centre.
The E. A. Rawlinson Centre has two seasons each year, the fall and winter/spring season. Each of these seasons is made up 12 concerts from a variety of genres. With the support of close to 80 community businesses, the E. A. Rawlinson Centre is able to present high quality entertainers from the international, national and regional stage.
In addition, the Canadian Tire Concert Season brings to the Olive and John Diefenbaker Theatre several marquee artists every year.
In less than two years, the Canadian Tire Series has presented such great name artists as Martin Short, The Yardbirds, George Thorogood, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Sawyer Brown, Blue Rodeo, Kenny Rogers, Dean Brody, The Beach Boys and Jason Alexander.
Stayed tuned for an announcement on Sept. 12 on the next great show in this series.
In addition, there are many excellent concerts and events that are presented by professional promoters or community groups (referred to as “rentals.”)
