Midwinter Concerts

Free! Three concerts in three days. Inuksuk High School. February 3-5, 2017 – (details below)


On February 3rd, 4th and 5th 2017, the Iqaluit Action Lab will present three concerts in three days at Inuksuk High School. Featuring all local talent, these concerts will warm the hearts of Iqaluit residents and celebrate midwinter in Iqaluit. The concerts are free, and everyone is welcome to attend.

  1. The first concert takes place on Friday February 3rd from 7:30-10:00pm. It will feature a diverse show of local contemporary music, including performers presenting Inuit, Zimbabwean, French, classical, and bluegrass music.
  1. The second concert takes place on Saturday February 4th from 7:30-10:00pm. It is an evening of Inuit cultural performances, and will showcase local talents performing traditional and Inuktitut-language music.
  1. The third concert takes place on Sunday February 5th from 2:00-4:00pm. This concert is focused on children’s, youth, and family music. This afternoon concert will include special performances by local children and youth, and adults performing music geared for family enjoyment.

This is the latest project from the Iqaluit Action Lab. Like the recent New Years Eve event, this project aims to increase community connection and capacity in Iqaluit. It also seeks to stimulate the local economy.

The Iqaluit Action Lab wants to turn opportunities into action by supporting local leaders to deliver local activities for local benefit. This activity is possible thanks to the presenting services of Alianait Arts Enterrtainment and funding from the Government of Canada.

“These midwinter concerts will bring us together in the warmth and joy of music and community. Everyone in Iqaluit on February 3rd, 4th and 5th is welcome to come to Inuksuk High School to enjoy these awesome performances.” – Robyn Campbell, Iqaluit Action Lab
