Anniversary Season Highlights

The organization, with deep appreciation for the robust support from its donors, announced the upcoming events as part of a celebration that underscores its commitment to bringing contemporary musical masterpieces to the public. 'It promises to be a banner year thanks to generous support from our funders,' noted Robert Pollock, Executive Director of E&FA.

The concert lineup kicks off with Bay Area's acclaimed pianist June Choi Oh delivering a modern piano repertoire. Scheduled for March 2, 2024, at 7 p.m., the performance will take place at the Keawala'i Congregational Church in Mākena, Maui. Oh will showcase pieces from composers such as Alban Berg, Samuel Barber, and Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Further strengthening musical ties, E&FA, in collaboration with Veritas Musicae (Seoul), will host a concert on March 18 at Roosevelt University in Chicago. Piano pieces by Korean and American composers will be the focus, with pianist Dr. Winston Choi coordinating the talent.

On Kauaʻi, the E&FA joins forces with the Kauaʻi Concerts Association to present the Duo Diorama comprised of violinist Minghuan Xu and pianist Winston Choi. Their performance, set for June 1, 2024, promises to enthrall attendees at St. Michael’s and All Angels Episcopal Church in Līhuʻe with compositions by Béla Bartók and Alfred Schnittke, among others.

The season continues with Alexandre Dossin, a pianist of international acclaim, who will interpret works by George Walker and Dmitri Kabalevsky. Two performances are slated for August 23 and 25 at Keawalaʻi Church, Mākena, and the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, respectively.

Admission to all E&FA events is complimentary, with pre-concert talks set to enhance the audience's experience. The free admission structure is made possible through the financial backing of foundations, government grants, and private contributions. The recent sponsors include prestigious philanthropic organizations like the Edward T. Cone Foundation and the Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
