In addition to our regular programming, Denali Arts Council is thrilled to announce our first official Performing Arts Season, bringing seven nationally touring shows to the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar in Talkeetna between September and April. We have selected a variety of acts, including jazz, performance comedy, indigenous folk, island soul, historical theater, Irish American rock, and guitar powerhouses. We are working hard to bring a diverse selection of performers to Talkeetna, while developing young artists and helping to re-balance the music industry to support more women and people of color.
At Denali Arts Council, a non-profit, we are artist and experience focused, and any and all profits made at our events go straight to supporting our values of diversity, artistry, and community and fulfilling our mission to nurture the arts in Talkeetna. Our audiences are appreciative, quiet, and respectful during performances. We don’t allow drunken distractions, disruptive talking, or excessive filming/phone use. Our shows are mostly seated, always all-ages (unless otherwise stated), and often bar w/ID. Some shows may have space for dancing it the music fits that vibe.
