Last year, DH and I went to a Maui Choral Arts holiday concert at Kihei Baptist Church. I knew two people who were singing in the concert. The church was packed, and the parking lot was full. It was a beautiful concert, with some complicated musical arrangements, but this year, I'm in the mood for something more casual. Maui Choral Arts is holding their holiday 2011 concert on December 10th this year, and if you want more chorale music, a friend recommends Uluwehi Guerrero's Maui Choir on December 17th.
Per Bill Hollingsworth, on December 23rd, there will be a concert at Grace Church in Pukalani, featuring Leiana (Formerly Known As 7 Simple Pieces) from Oahu and F.I.Y.A. (A local upcountry band).
The cost of the event is free and there will be food available. (My note: I'm sure donations would be appreciated!)
Concert starts at 6pm and should end around 9pm. (This is reposted from a comment made, but which may or may not automatically show up to other viewers.)
Makawao Church Christmas Concert: Sunday, 12/18/11
3 pm to 4:30 pm
Featuring: the Makawao Union Choir, Lisa Paulson, Soprano; Elisabeth Gregg, Organ; Stephen Haines, Piano; and Tatyana Shapiro-Leiste, Harp.
There is a suggested donation, but it's very hard to read (even if I blow the photo to X-large) - $10 or $15???
The Maui Folksong Circle is having a Christmas carol sing-a-long on 12/18/11, also on Sunday in Kihei at 3 pm, mainland time. Go to the Garden Room at Kalama Heights Retirement Center, 101 Kanani Road, Kihei.
