Fairbanks Concert Association

You haven’t heard much from us lately but it has been an epic summer for FCA!
Witness our new website.
Look for our new online ticketing where you can choose your seats to roll out midway through the season.
Find our first-ever Annual Report (PDF).  We wanted to do a better job of reporting back to our supporters. We think it’s fun, readable and informative.
Perhaps most important: we have a whole series of new events designed to engage and involve you.

Here’s the first:

Friday, September 26
An authentic Lu’au with Masters of Hawaiian Music, George Kahumoku Jr and Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i as the evening’s chefs. Join us four-time Grammy Award winner George Kahumoku Jr., on slack key guitar and vocals; Ledward Kaapana, musical legend, National Heritage Fellow unrivaled in picking style on slack key guitar and ‘ukulele; and Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i—an NEA Folk Heritage Fellow for Hawaiian falsetto singing—on ‘ukulele and vocals combine to bring their audiences an authentic and fun-filled Hawaiian experience. They share music, stories, culture, and joy with audiences from kids to kupuna (elders) and everyone in-between.There will be music and dance and a menu of authentic dishes.
Space is limited to 150. Cost: $60. Call the FCA office 474-8081 to pay and reserve.
After kicking off the season with Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group the season will really warm up! We hope you can join us for this special evening of authentic food, music and fun!

After that we are working on a series of talks relating to Ernest Shackleton and our project with the UAF Department of Theater and Film to present Split Knuckle Theater’s Endurance, an intimate concert followed by an Everything but the Kitchen Sink jam with TorQ Percussion, an intimate film night with BodyVox’s Artistic Director, and of course, our Community Dance Team Flash Mob starts this spring.
Keep checking back as we post more information on these activities and create ways for you to sign up online.
As always, the best way to find out about our special activities is to become a member of FCA.
Thanks for coming. Enjoy the show!
