Kaua‘i High Singers and Chorus concert

7 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday

Kaua‘i High School Chorus presents “Where The River Meets the Sea: A Fall Choral Concert” for two nights only at Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall. Musical numbers include selections from “Little Mermaid,” “Titanic: A New Musical;” a “Beach Boys Medley;” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and various sea chanteys. Some pieces from the repertoire were chosen to honor the memory of the late David Conrad.

Proceeds from the concerts will help chorus students travel to O‘ahu for the Hawai‘i All-State High School Honor Choir and to Honolulu to experience Hawai‘i Opera Theatre’s production in February of “Carmen” by Georges Bizet. This opportunity comes from HOT’s “Opera For Everyone” program to enable students to see, hear and experience grand opera. “Where the River Meets the Sea” is directed by Nina Saraos. Advance tickets through students are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors; $8 adults at the door and $6 for children. Keiki 11 years and under are free.
