Kauai Klassics Fundraiser on Sunday

Kauai United Way’s 11th annual Kauai Klassics Fundraiser concert is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Lihue.

“This event offers a chance to see the same highly talented musicians it would cost hundreds of dollars to see on the mainland,” said KUW Executive Director Scott Giarman.

“But unlike mainland concerts, where you dare not forget your opera glasses, Kauai Klassics are up-close, (and) in an intimate, Garden Island setting, you literally interact with the performers,” he said.

Musicians scheduled to perform include Craig Reiss, a violinist who is from the San Francisco opera and ballet orchestras; Jane Marvin, who plays the oboe and is from the Baltimore Symphony; Julie Mckenzie, who plays the flute and also from the S.F. opera and ballet orchestras; and Marc Shapiro, a pianist is from the S.F. symphony.

Trips to San Francisco or New York will be among the offerings during the live auction.

All proceeds go to KUW’s social-service programs.

Tickets start at $30. Info: 245-2043.
