Every Wednesday at Arts in the Park noon hour, there will be a kids oriented show. In addition to a performance from the Big Band and an art demonstration by Emma Barr, there will be an employee from the Yukon Literacy Coalition providing books to the public.
The Big Band has been playing its unique style of large group jazz around the Yukon since January 1990. Originally known as the Circumpolar Swing Band because it was formed to provide entertainment at 1990’s Circumpolar Health Conference in Whitehorse, the group has been performing at a great variety of events ever since. Past appearances include the Frostbite, Alsek and Dawson City Music Festivals as well as cabaret-style dances at the Yukon Arts Center.
