ON Stage

YAVAPAI LIVE! Debuts October 4

Beginning Sunday, October 4 through December, Yavapai College Performing Arts Center is turning the county’s biggest stage over to a variety of soloists and musical ensembles with YAVAPAI LIVE! — streaming music and entertainment featuring a new artist or artists weekly.

“We are delighted to announce Yavapai Live! – our new weekly concert series,” says YCPAC Director of Programming and Development, Dr. Craig Ralston said. “We will be streaming quality music from our stage right to your home every week through the end of 2020! Every Sunday, we will feature a new artist at 3:30 p.m., with an encore performance the following Thursday at 7 p.m.”

The first month celebrates our remarkable resident artists, with performers from the Arizona Philharmonic as well as Yavapai College’s own faculty and staff musicians. Audiences can stream and enjoy these local concerts via Vimeo for free, with a voluntary tax deductible donation.

Yavapai Live! is part of Yavapai College Performing Arts Center’s commitment to provide accessible arts entertainment to the community during the COVID-19 lockdown. YCPAC will celebrate local artists by offering a performance platform, and dedicate a portion of viewer donations to support future artists.

The first month of the Yavapai Live! schedule is as follows: The series premieres Sunday, October 4 with flutists DUO CATALINA, presented by the Arizona Philharmonic. Internationally renowned concert pianist BENITA ROSE follows October 11 with selections from Chopin and Liszt. The Arizona Philharmonic returns on October 18 with the classical strings of QUARTET SABAKU; then, opera tenor BILLE BRULEY (accompanied by award-winning concert pianist Kristie Janczyk) will be at the mic for songs “from Dowland to Broadway.”
