Maui Youth Philharmonic Orchestra's Annual Winter Concert

Maui Real EstateThe Maui Youth Philharmonic Orchestra's Annual Winter Concert is coming up on December 14th. Over twenty Maui students from eight local schools will be providing us with a wonderful performance. It's free to attend, for both adults and children. If you're thinking about buying Maui real estate and moving your family out here, education is probably on your mind. This concert is a great opportunity to learn more about what Maui has to offer to its students.

Tax deductible donations can also be made at the event for additional support. It really is a good cause, but contributing is up to you. After all, there are a lot of wonderful organizations to support on the island. They are a big part of the reason why Maui living is so special.
