Whitehorse concerts started over 35 years ago with performances in the local high school gym, and later in a church. The Yukon Arts Centre opened in 1992, and we were finally able to present our concerts in a luxurious brand new theatre.
Over the years we have presented everything from the Edmonton Symphony and Tafelmusik, to world-renowned chamber ensembles, piano duos, and virtually every other genre in classical music. We have also presented top quality jazz ensembles and some of the best children's performers in Canada and the U.S.
Whitehorse Concerts is proud to have served Whitehorse and rural communities through our school programming in past years and we look forward to bringing great music to a stage (or school) near you this season!
