Kudos to Kumu Hula Troy Allen Hinano Lazaro on coordinating the “Beautiful Music, Beautiful Hula” concert Sunday night at Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center.

Troy said the concert was a vision held by his late kumu Doric Yaris, and he just did it — not as so much as a tribute, but just doing it.

It was a great opportunity to run into Maila Gibson Bandmann (too bad it wasn’t raining, Ron Wiley), and Ho‘okena (the rehearsal run sounded better than the CDs). Kimberly Hope McDonough (she’s got a concert with Aowl Owen coming up, Feb. 14 in Poipu) got an opportunity to take the stage in the company of other musical greats with her acoustic violin because she said it sounds better than the electric one.

Kimberly will also be on stage for the Zonta Club of Kauai’s Heroine Song event coming up Saturday at Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.
