First Friday at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum

Friday, May 2, 2014 6 -- 9 p.m. - The Black Reds!

Scheduled for First Friday in May, the Hawai‘i State Art Museum features The Black Reds! Join us May 2nd on the second floor of the Hawai‘i State Art Museum from 6 PM until 9 PM for some blues and jazz.

First Friday in April was hopping at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum for the over 500 people in attendance. Monkey Waterfall, led by Yukie Shiroma, put on two stimulating shows based on the famous play and film Twelve Angry Men. Through dance and audience participation and just plain good times, Monkey Water- fall delighted the crowd and had many in stitches.

We were also very lucky to have Shisui Hashimoto, a performance calligrapher, take the stage during intermission and at the end of the evening. Ms. Hashimoto is an award-winning calligrapher in her native Japan and uses the brush to express her innermost thoughts on paper. Her second performance started out with her father singing an old Japanese song, an unforgettable treat for the audience.

Save the date! The Hawaii Youth Symphony (HYS) returns in June for the third consecutive year of the Alumni Chamber Music series. Groups consisting of alums from the ‘60s to recent grads will share their favorite works by Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bartok, Strauss, and even some popular and Broadway show tunes. In 2014, HYS is celebrating 50 years of serving Hawaii's youth through music.

This is the perfect chance to hear great musicians who have come through HYS, especially those who have not performed in Hawaii since their teenage years and have moved on with careers on the main- land and beyond.
