In August, 2018 the Chamber Singers completed a successful cultural exchange in Maui, HI. In addition to collaborating with the Maui Chamber Orchestra and Chorus on Haydn’s Harmoniemesse at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, the Chamber Singers held a free concert at the historic Keawala’i Congregational Church.

 
There’s nothing that says “Welcome to Maui” like being greeted with Leis and singing and ‘ukulele and beloved former directors! From this initial welcoming came gesture after gesture of amazing hospitality, helpfulness, and camaraderie.

The Keawala’i concert flew by in a whirlwind of emotion, bolstered by a lovely and lively audience. They particularly enjoyed our Hawaiian repertoire, which we’d worked on over the course of the week with John Rowehl and other local teachers and singers. I was grateful to come away from our time in Maui knowing some of their musical tradition and language.

There were moments during the evening performance where the distant sound of crashing waves rocked with the tempo of our music and I just couldn’t have asked for a more amazing experience.
