Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More
For twenty years Eddie Kamae's legendary band, The Sons of Hawai'i played a leading role in the Hawaiian Cultural Renaissance. Kamae himself has become a folk hero, known for his instrumental genius and for a vigorous singing style that carried the spirit of an ancient vocal tradition into the late 20th century. This year he started sitting in with four featured performers who share his spirit and musicianship: guitarist Mike Ka'awa, bass player and guitarist Ocean Kaowili, bass player Analu Aina, and guitartist Braddah Smitty. Translated from Hawaiian, Ho'omau means to continue. Hear their songs and their humor, their reminiscences, and witness a devotion to a sound that continues the great legacy of Eddie Kamae and The Sons of Hawai'i.
