Jean Murray: Music

Yukona

(Fairbanks Light Opera Theatre)
Words by Emogene Coleman; music by Arthur Boyle
"Yukona," appeared in the February 10, 1902, Daily Klondike Nugget as the winner in a song contest with a prize of $50. The paper had great expectations for the anthem saying, "[It] has been received with great favor by all who have heard the song, which is especially impressive when rendered by a large number of singers as was the case at the concert Friday night." Gedeon Pepin (previous song) more than likely attended the performance.
