Experience - Upcoming Events

Join us for a great night of music with BPAC’s ‘Live & Local’ series! Each show features both emerging and established homegrown talent, backed on-stage by seasoned industry professionals, the Mark Lalama Trio. November 14 will feature guests Hayley Verrall, winner of BPAC’s ‘Hall of Fame’ award and Terra Lightfoot, a Canadian musician and singer-songwriter from Hamilton, Ontario who has released four albums.

The Mark Lalama Trio is Mark Lalama on keyboards and vocals, Davide DiRenzo on drums and vocals, and Rich Moore on bass and vocals – all in-demand session and touring musicians who have played on hundreds of stages and studio recordings with top artists ranging from Tom Cochrane to Holly Cole and just about everyone in between. This trio is fast earning a reputation as one of the most engaging and intuitive bands around, and together they create a unique brand of incredible, genre-defying original music that never fails to inspire those who are there to take it all in.

“You fellas are so dammed good… great players all, with oodles of feel and ears like satellite dishes…I felt like a mangy dog riding shotgun in the back seat of a Cadillac. Thank you so much for inviting me to the party.” – Stephen Fearing, multi award-winning singer/songwriter


The Burlington Performing Arts Centre’s 5th Annual Festival of Trees will be sparking yuletide joy in patrons who visit BPAC between Nov. 18th and Dec. 19th. Pre-lit artificial Christmas trees, generously donated by Canadian Tire – Burlington Stores and sponsored by local businesses, will light up BPAC’s Lobby for over 4 weeks – until their silent auction ‘winners’ take them home for the holidays.

Jim Cuddy has written many of the songs that have become indelible in the soundtrack of Canadian lives. With the release of his fifth solo album, Countrywide Soul, he continues to contribute to that extraordinary songbook and on this record, Jim continues to find new ways to balance personal reflection and plainspoken storytelling, remaining both intimate and accessible.

Both as a solo artist and as one of the creative forces in Blue Rodeo, Jim has received nearly every accolade Canada can bestow upon a musician including 15 JUNO Awards, The Order of Canada and, along with bandmates Blue Rodeo, has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received the Governor General Performing Arts Award and a Star on the Walk of Fame.

“Jim Cuddy, co-frontman for Canada’s venerable Blue Rodeo, has rarely sounded better” – Exclaim!


Chantal Kreviazuk – one of Canada’s most recognizable voices – released of her first Christmas album, the 10-track “Christmas Is A Way Of Life, My Dear,” in November 2019. The title track as well as a jubilant cover of the classic “Walking In A Winter Wonderland.” The album features five brand new original songs, plus Chantal’s spin on classics such as “Silent Night,” “Blue Christmas” (a duet with husband Raine Maida, AKA MOON VS SUN) and “Wonderful Christmas Time” (featuring the debut of son Sal Maida).

Chantal Kreviazuk is a platinum-selling, three-time Juno Award-winning artist from Winnipeg. In 2016, she returned with her sixth album “Hard Sail” after a nearly seven-year break from recorded music. During that time, she was focused on raising her three sons with husband Raine Maida, as well as her other musical passion, crafting songs. Chantal has written for Drake, Pitbull, Kendrick Lamar, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Josh Groban and countless others.
