Former Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page leads off The Yukon Arts Centre’s spring and summer lineup with a
concert in April, followed by An Operatic Cabaret with Julie Nesrallah and Robert Kortgaard in May, then an evening with Canadian marketing guru Terry O’Reilly in June. We are also proud to announce a partnership with Whitehorse-based theatre company Larrikin Entertainment for a production at the Old Fire Hall in April.
Hot on the heels of his induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame alongside his ex-bandmates in Barenaked Ladies, singer-songwriter Steven Page launches his Canadian tour to support his new album Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II, a forceful musical statement of his solo music career. The evening will include a variety of musical material including songs from the Barenaked Ladies catalogue. The show will be held on April 27, at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $50.
For those with an appreciation for the opera, The Yukon Arts Centre is pleased to be bringing up An Operatic Cabaret featuring Julie Nesrallah and Robert Kortgaard. Mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah is a singer, actress, and broadcaster who dazzles audiences with her engaging personality and her rich, expressive voice. Join her and pianist Robert Kortgaard for an eclectic evening of stories, arias, Broadway tunes and a few surprises. The performance is on May 10 & 11 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $30.

session on June 19 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $45.
