Sound Bites

Sound Matters at the Yukon Arts Centre

Each year over 30,000 people of all ages attend about 170 music, dance, film, theatre, multi-media, spoken word, festivals and other performing arts and cultural events at the Yukon Arts Centre, presented by 40 Yukon and Whitehorse arts organizations.  

The sound technology installed in the Yukon Arts Centre is 25 years old. Since then, digital surround sound systems have evolved dramatically, ensuring every theatre patron in every seat hears the same performance.  

The Yukon Arts Foundation has launched a campaign to raise funds to purchase a new sound system for the Yukon Arts Centre.  Almost 50% of the $90,000 target has been achieved to date. With individual, business and community support, the Arts Centre's sound technology can be upgraded to the 21st century benefiting everyone.

Every contribution-- no matter the size-- will contribute to this mission. Please join us in being part of the solution. The plan is to make this happen summer of 2015.
