One of the joys of living on Kaua’i is to actually be in the presence of music
played by some of the great musical artists of the world.
all very well, but the opportunity to feel the tension between performers and
their audience can raise enjoyment to a much higher level.
Concert Association is again in the process of presenting a series of concerts
to a most appreciative, but far too small audience.
I feel especially
privileged, since my memories of Kaua’i concerts go back to those folding
chairs at the Parish Hall of the Church.
Now we have a Performing Arts
Center with superb acoustics and very comfy seats. And there is a world-class
grand piano now.
Those who missed the piano concert given by Misha and Cipa
Dichter on Feb. 27 were deprived of a transporting experience. The music made
by those two people soared, scintillated and thundered around them and took us
out of the everyday world.
All is not lost for those who weren’t there. Two
more concerts are scheduled this season: Schocker/Vieaux on Sunday, March 12,
at 5 p.m., and the Hawai’i Vocal Arts Ensemble at 7 p.m., both at the KCC
Performing Arts Center. Try ’em -you’ll love ’em.
