A special finale to our season awaits you in March of 2019! Three names—Verdi, Brahms, and Mahelona—say it all. A widely diverse experience awaits you and your family as the Philharmonic presents Of History and Nature.
Giuseppe Verdi is one of the most prolific Italian composers from the 19th Century. Symphonic works, operas, sacred works and songs, and chamber music were all masterfully created by Verdi. His opera Nabucco is performed all across the world in concert halls and opera houses. We are delighted to begin this concert with its Overture to Nabucco.
The Kamuela Philharmonic is full of amazingly talented musicians and one such person is our principal cellist, Herb Mahelona. Not only is he a talented cellist and music educator, he is an incredibly accomplished composer—more specifically, of native Hawaiian opera. In this performance, the Philharmonic will premiere his newly composed symphonic suite that depicts The Battle of Kuamo’o. We are excited to bring this work to life for our audience and KPO family members.
The concert culminates with a nature-inspired retreat of Johannes Brahms. His Symphony No. 2 in D major was created with the inspiration of some of the most idyllic views Brahms had ever experienced. This work brings a fantastic close to a concert season that has taken our audiences to wondrous places in their minds, and souls.
