Agency History

The Alaska Music Trails series of concerts began in Juneau Alaska when Maxim Schapiro, a Russian pianist, and Luigi Siva a cellist performed a first concert of the series in 1950 at the 20th Century Theatre. Over the next twenty years concerts were given in eighteen Alaskan communities and in seven Canadian ones, including Grande Prairie. In their 21st anniversary series in 1970-71, they presented four concerts in Grande Prairie in the Montrose Elementary School Auditorium.
