In our second installment of the 2018-19 season, the Kamuela Philharmonic welcomes the winners of our annual Madeline Harris-Schatz Youth Concerto Competition to the stage. Three of the State of Hawai‘i’s incredibly young and talented musicians will be highlighted on the Kahilu Theatre stage.
Some of the most enjoyable symphonic works to experience have been written for ballet. This performance will feature two of the most famous works for ballet, one obvious by title and one instantly recognizable to the listener. We are thrilled to announce that student dancers from the West Hawaii Dance Theatre school will be performing new choreography to these ballet masterworks.
Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake has one of the most recognizable melodies in all of the symphonic repertoire. Hearing the iconic notes strung together with the unique tonal quality of the oboe, one can vividly imagine the gorgeous swan, elegantly floating across a glassy smooth lake.
Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours is the type of symphonic work that isn’t immediately known by its title, but when the listener travels through each portion of this work, childhood images come racing to mind. Whether it is from the iconic 1963 tune by Alan Sherman or Walt Disney’s fantastic presentation of dancing hippos, ostriches, and crocodiles, this is a piece sure to make you smile.
