Posted on: January 17, 2014

On Friday (1/17), an unsigned article in West Hawaii Today reports that the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra, located on the “Big Island” of Hawaii, “will continue its 2013-14 concert season at 4 p.m. Sunday with a ‘Blast From the Past,’ playing favorite works from previous years to commemorate the orchestra’s 10th anniversary. The program at Kahilu Theatre in Waimea will feature solo performances by concertmaster Ursula Vietze, principal second violinist Joel Gimpel and artistic director Madeline Schatz in Antonio Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons.’ The orchestra’s string section will be highlighted in this program, which will also include Felix Mendelssohn’s ‘Swiss Symphony’ and Samuel Barber’s Adagio [for Strings].… The mission of the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra Society is to present live, high-quality orchestral music to Big Island audiences, and to further the musical education of young people.”
