KCA concerts: Out of this worldTo the Forum:

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.

Recordings are

all very well, but the opportunity to feel the tension between performers and

their audience can raise enjoyment to a much higher level.

The Kaua’i

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.
