Two award-winning and acclaimed Hawaiian musicians, Nathan Aweau and Jeff Peterson, join forces to create Mamo, a thrilling duo that takes traditional hula standards (along with some of the pair's original works) and gives them a little jazz twist. The result is a fresh look at some of Hawaii's most popular hula songs. Peterson is a renowned slack key guitarist who's proficient in a variety of styles from jazz and classical to slack key and beyond. Bassist and vocalist Aweau has been hailed by The New York Times for his "advanced understanding of harmony and orchestration" and "effortless" singing. Both are Na Hoku Hanohano Award winners who have dazzled Barclay audiences with their brilliant musicianship in recent years. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
There is a feeling that Russian composers are telling stories, not just to convey information, but to unburden themselves — to reflect on the human condition as it existed in their time. Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition', Tchaikovsky's 'Souvenir de Florence' and Stravinsky's 'Rag Time' illustrate this idea. The Hutchins Consort Artistic Director Joe McNalley creates a program of Russian music that invites you to travel through places in time, just as the composers intended.
About the Ticket Supplier: The Hutchins Consort
The Hutchins Consort plays on the eight scaled violins of the violin octet designed and built by famed luthier Dr. Carleen Hutchins. The instruments are the first successful attempt to create an acoustically balanced set of instruments that can sound truly like violins across the entire range of written music. With instruments ranging from the tiny treble violin, tuned one octave above the standard violin, to the gigantic large bass violin, tuned one octave lower than a 'cello, the Hutchins Consort produces an astonishing palette of sounds.
