As various classical music organizations (symphony orchestras, opera and ballet companies, chamber music organization, you name it) teeter-totter between opening and closing their doors during this challenging time, Chamber Music Hawaii is holding its doors open and providing music here in Honolulu.
On October 24, CMH went digital and presented its first episode in a newly reimagined season — “Postcards: Music of Travel and Homeland.” It was aired on social media, mainly on Facebook, and was well produced and received. It was great to see all the moving pieces and planning come together for this show. Big applause to our GM Barett Hoover and the Artistic Committee which I’m proud to be on. Lots of appreciation also goes to the Livingstons for their gorgeous home serving as the backdrop in this episode. I’m still getting used to the live-stream aspect of performing and knowing that many more set of eyes will be continually watching and observing our growth from afar is both exciting and nerve-racking. Oh, the World Wide Web!
If you missed our digital concert, we’ll be rolling out short clips on the CMH YouTube channel. Check them out when you have time and don’t forget to “like” and “subscribe” if you need #songsofcomfort during this crazy and challenging time. Stay well!
