Kauai Voices prepares a ‘Mixed Plate’

  • Liz Hahn / Special to TGIFR!DAY

    Kauai Voices presents a “Mixed Plate” of songs during its four concerts this month, from Kilauea to Waimea.

Kauai Voices is serving a mixed plate of five different music genres: Blues, gospel, jazz, Hawaiian and country at their “Mixed Plate” concerts. There are four concerts coming starting this weekend.

They will feature a combination of different flavors or choices on one big plate. The musical chefs are Artistic Director Randy Leonard and accompanist Monica Chung.

Fifty singers perform in each genre, with accompanied instruments.

“It is going to be a delicious concert, music for everyone, and the variety of music will highlight our diverse musical talents in our group,” Leonard said.

Kauai Voices will unveil a new gospel piece.

The upcoming concerts are:

• Kilauea, 6 p.m. Saturday, Anaina Hou Porter Pavilion;

• Waimea, 3 p.m. Sunday, Historic Waimea Theatre;

• Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center, 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25;

• Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center, 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26.

Come early to the Kilauea show and mingle with the crowd. In Waimea, you can indulge in movie snacks in the theater. In Lihue, try pies by The Right Slice before or in-between the concert.

Featured songs include “Moonglow,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” and “Hawaii Aloha,” said Leonard.

There will be a special hula performance, too.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $30 for VIP early seating.
