Fall Concert Series

 

Honolulu – The Statewide Cultural Extension Program (SCEP), a program of UH Mānoa Outreach College, expands its SCEP Live Online offerings with a fall concert series. For four consecutive Fridays, starting on August 28, 2020, live musical performances by local artists will be streamed for audiences to enjoy in the comfort and safety of their homes. The free hour-long performances will start at 7:00pm. Please email csinfo@hawaii.edu with your name and the performances/dates you are interested in.

Kicking off the series on August 28, musicians Nathan Aweau, Benny Chong, Ian O’Sullivan, and Jeff Peterson bring their guitar, ukulele, bass and vocal talents to perform classical, jazz, Hawaiian, and music from other parts of the world.

 

Nathan Aweau:  Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Nathan Aweau’s has accompanyied performers including Gabe Baltazar, Henry Kapono, and Loyal Garner. He has been part of award-winning groups Kaʻeo, The Aliis, and Hapa. Local music critic Wayne Harada said, “Nathan is that distinguished rarity…a jack of all trades, master of a wide domain.”

 

Benny Chong: Benny Chong is a founding member of The Aliis, a group that, together with Don Ho, rose to international fame in the 1960s. Benny has taken jazz ‘ukulele playing to a new level because of the musical challenges of his repertoire and the complexity of his unique and masterful left and right hand techniques.

 

Ian O’Sullivan: Described as “thoughtful” by Classical Guitar and praised by the Honolulu Advertiser as “delightful,” Ian O’Sullivan is a guitarist and composer from the North Shore of O‘ahu. He is well-versed in Hawaiian slack-key guitar and the ‘ukulele, in addition to the Western classical repertoire.

 

Jeff Peterson:  With his mastery of slack-key, classical, and jazz guitar, Jeff Peterson expresses a unique and transcendent voice while remaining deeply rooted in the traditions of his Hawaiian heritage. Jeff has contributed to two Grammy Award-winning recordings and has been honored with nine Na Hōkū Hanohano Awards.

 

The concert series continues with the following:

  • September 4: Violinist Iggy Jang, cellist Sung Chan Chang, and pianist Jonathan Korth
  • September 11:Jazz with local all-star musicians led by versatile jazz pianist, composer, arranger, and music director Tommy James
  • September 18:Kenny Endo and Taiko Center of the Pacific with special guests, Noel Okimoto, Dean Taba, Todd Yukumoto, and SheenRu Yong
