Fredericton, NB

Charlotte Street Arts Centre (CSAC) has 3 main proponents to the organization. We are Landlords to the building that houses many artists and arts organizations, we have an ARTreach program that provides programming to vulnerable communities, and we also have an auditorium and community room that we rent to the public, and host our own events. We have only dabbled in hosting our own events as we had no elevator and accessibility has been a barrier. We are currently going through construction and the new space will allow us to provide much more in-house programming for performance.

Dartmouth Community Concert Association was founded in 1957 and has had over 50 consecutive years of successful concert presentation. Most of our concerts would be described with the popular misnomer of “classical”. Our season usually runs from late Sep. to early May, with four (4) concerts, usually 2 before and 2 after Christmas. We use Woodlawn United Church as our venue. – an A-frame building with seating for approx. 500, with enviable adjacent paved parking for over 200 vehicles. We are a subscription-based series, but make individual admissions available at each concert. “Membership has its privileges” so therein lies the best deal!
