Carroll to kick off HPAF’s 10th season
Hawaii Performing Arts Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary in a gala event featuring a concert by jazz legend Liane Carroll on March 7 at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea. The party will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction and champagne reception. Service, dining and travel packages including trips to Las Vegas, Ireland and wine country will be up for bidding. The concert begins at 7 p.m. The Olliephonics will also perform. Pupu and a cash bar will be available. Proceeds will go in part for scholarships for young artists from Hawaii to attend HPAF.
Winner of British Jazz Awards “Vocalist of the Year” and a BBC Double Award winner, Carroll has been an HPAF favorite since 2009. Her latest CD “Ballads” was released in 2013 to rave reviews.
HPAF’s big 10th anniversary season next summer will bring more than 20 classical music and musical theater events. Hawaii Symphony concertmaster Iggy Jang and renowned violinist Chee-Yun will appear, along with Ricky Ian Gordon, one of America’s great composers of opera and song. Many concerts are free. Dates are July 6 to 28.
Tickets the March 7 event range from $20 to $70 and include the champagne reception. Buy tickets online through the Kahilu Theatre’s online box office at kahilutheatre.org, by telephone at 885-6868 or in person from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays at the Kahilu box office.
