The University of Hawai‘i Saxophone Choir presents an exciting program with several new premiers for this ensemble including: Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral (arr. Kaneshiro), Allegro from Beethoven’s Wind Octet (arr. El-Farrah), and Va! Laisse Couler me Larmes (arr. Yukumoto).
Joining our concert is special guest, mezzo-soprano Maya Hoover. Praised for her vocal beauty, Ms. Hoover has been featured in performances locally and internationally. She has been a distinguished faculty member of the music department of the University of Hawai‘i since 2007.
This year’s concert will also feature the debut of the Hawai‘i High School Saxophone Ensemble directed by David Hirano. This group features Oahu’s top high school saxophonists from six Oahu schools and is under the auspices of the Hawai‘i Saxophone Foundation.
