  • Yukon Rotary Music Festival

    • Wednesday, April 08, 2015 at 06:00 PM – April 18, 2015
    • Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse, YT, Canada

    The Rotary Music Festival promotes the appreciation of music by organizing and operating an annual festival that encourages amateur performers and students to participate and perform in a positive environment, leading toward further personal growth and excellence. Highly qualified adjudicators share the benefits of their training and experience in a workshop environment. Entrants come away with new skills and ideas, as well as increased motivation and enthusiasm about their area of interest. They learn through performing and receiving feedback in a non-competitive atmosphere. Our festival serves an estimated 1,200 musicians in the Yukon in the following disciplines: piano, woodwinds, strings, guitar, brass, percussion, vocal, choral, bands and ensembles. Different music styles can be heard from classical to jazz with a hint of pop and fiddle. The festival is working with the dance community to expand the performing and learning opportunities to amateur dancers in 2015. New developments will be shared during the year. We continue to be supported by the Rotary Club of Whitehorse as well as government funding, corporate and private sponsors, and more than 60 volunteers from the community. We appreciate the generous support from everyone who contributes.

  • Cannibal: The Musical

    • Thursday, April 09, 2015 at 06:00 PM – April 26, 2015
    • Old Fire Hall in Whitehorse, YT, Canada

    Trey Parker

    Directed by Brian Fidler

    Indeed, this is the same Trey Parker behind Team America, South Park, and the recent, massive Broadway hit The Book of Mormon. Cannibal is loosely based on the true story of Alfred Packer and the sordid details of the trip from Utah to Colorado that left his five fellow travellers dead—and partially eaten. Encouraged by the writer to adapt the show to one’s whim, it was just waiting to get filtered through a Yukon lens! It’s the goofiest musical about cannibalism your eyes and ears will ever “feast” upon!
