Maui Classical Music Festival Celebrates Its 33rd Season

Tomorrow morning, May 6, Elizabeth and I return to our Yang home – Eagle’s Nest in Scottsdale, Arizona.  We could not have wished for a better send off from our beloved islands.

Last night, our celestial guides and a group of very talented musical artists provided a wonderful farewell sunset concert at the magnificent setting of Maui’s oldest church – Keawala’i Congregational  in Makena in the southwestern part of the island (founded in 1832).

Maui Classical Music Festival, now in its 33rd season, has attracted over 400 musicians from the U.S. and 15 foreign countries to come to our island and share their magic with appreciative and knowledgeable audiences in four unique settings. The festival performances are held at Maui’s oldest churches.

Each venue has a different musical repertoire. The Monday evening program was titled “Sizzling Strings, Guitar and Piano.” It included works of Manuel de Falla, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Camille Saint-Saens, and Robert Schumann.

Here are some pictures we took before the concert. The last two were taken at our Rainbow Shower home before we left for Keawalai.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
