Maui Invitational Music Festival

Maalaea Condos for Sale

By Mark Harbison

On Friday, April 15th, the 2011 Maui Invitational Music Festival will be presenting the Maui Community Band and Henry Kaleialoha in this free Hawaiian music concert. The festival will be held from 5-7pm at the beautiful Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa.

This festival includes many events throughout the year, including classes, concerts and workshops, and it is presented by the Arts Education for Children Group (AECG), a nonprofit organization here on Maui that works hard to provide artistic and culturally enriching experiences for the youth in our island's community. It is also supported by the Hawaii Tourism Authority and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

This particular event is a Hawaiian themed concert, and will feature the Hawaiian steel guitar master Henry Allen, with his band and dancers who will perform traditional hula. Also performing will be Gabe Goebbat, an impressive student of slack key guitar and ukulele. Lastly, there will be the Maui Community Band, which will play specially selected pieces for this event, and will be directed by Siuai Laufou, the band director of Kamehameha School.

Keeping Hawaiian culture alive is a crucial effort for our community, and it enriches the lives of residents and visitors alike. If you want to support this endeavor and have a good time, this concert is free. Your attendance alone will be good for this event and others like it. What could be a better way to spend your evening than listening to authentic Hawaiian music in one of the most luxuriantly beautiful hotels on Maui? If you are interested, or you need more information, see the AECG website.
