The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts is a multi-venue performing arts center comprised of four theaters: the Atwood Concert Hall, Discovery Theatre, Sydney Laurence Theatre, and Elvera Voth Hall. One of Anchorage’s most notable public structures, the center has design features meant to recall Alaskan summers, including textiles by local artists, and four-story forest-green columns. The facility's performance spaces and adjoining lobbies take up just over a one-block area, and host everything from Broadway shows, ballets, jazz concerts, operas, and local events. Resident companies include the Anchorage Opera, Alaska Dance Theatre, the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, and a handful of other local performance art organizations.
Since 1975, this Auditorium has held lectures, concerts, dance performances and much more. Used for public forums as much as for folk and rock concerts, it handles many University performances and has proven to be an excellent venue for many kinds of local and international acts. Each winter, in January, the Irish Music Festival is held here.
