Mayor Mufi Hannemann invites everyone to a free concert by Na Hoku Hanohano recording artists in the Mission Memorial Auditorium at 7 p.m., Saturday, September 29, 2007. Because of limited seating, reservations are required.
“An Evening with 2007 Na Hoku Hanohano Artists” will feature Paula Fuga, an innovator of her own style of modern Hawaiian soul; Led Kaapana, master of stringed instruments; Mahela, daughter of veteran performer Marlene Sai; and musical groups Kaukahi and Pali.
Mayor Hannemann said, “It is a pleasure for the City to work with the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts in hosting the concert. This event will not only allow artists to share and perpetuate their music, it will be our way of sharing our civic space for the enjoyment of residents and visitors of Honolulu.”
Call the Hawaii Academy of Recording Artists, 593-9424, to make a reservation or for more information. Seating is limited to 300 people and parking will be available in the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Parking Structure. No food or drinks are allowed in the auditorium.
Mission Memorial Auditorium is one of three distinctive red-brick buildings located on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center grounds. The structures were built in 1916 as a tribute to the American Protestant mission to Hawaii.
The concert is supported by a grant from the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts.
