Whitehorse Concerts is dedicated to providing Yukoners with access to its performers for lessons, lectures and workshops during their visit to the Yukon. Although their stay is usually of short duration, these performers are always generous with their knowledge and take time out of their busy schedules to teach, meet with members of the music community, and give pre-concert interviews.
Youth Music Initiative Program
This widely popular program is presented in conduction with the Yukon Registered Music Teachers' Association. All young music fans (under 19) can purchase tickets for only $7 or season subscriptions for $40. If you would like more information, contact Whitehorse Concerts or talk to your misc teacher.
Performers give artists' talks before every concert from 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the production room at the Yukon Arts Centre. These are free and everyone is welcome. Talks are geared towards music students and there's always time to ask some questions and learn a little more about each performer.
Whitehorse Concerts has been bringing world class performers to schools all over the Yukon for the past 23 years. They have seen early music, harps, drums, pianists and almost all forms of classical music. We also take the music out to rural communities, and we have presented performances over the years in every community in the Yukon. Our school tours have sent a bassoonist to Old Crow, four trombone players to the 12 students in Destruction Bay, and a string quartet to the school in Dawson City. Thousands of students and almost two generations of students have heard and seen these wonderful performers in their schools over the years.
If you are interested in taking a lesson with one of the performers you see, or if you’d like to learn more about them, please get in touch with us.
