Maui Pops Orchestra Concerts for the 2014-2015 Season
All Concerts are at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) and begin at 3:00pm on Sundays

The Maui Pops Orchestra is proud to announce our music programs for the upcoming 2014-2015 concert season. Four concerts are planned for this coming season:

Holiday Pops (December 7, 2014)

Our annual "Holiday Pops" concert will please the "snow birds" who arrive on Maui in November, as well as our local patrons. It will include the Maui Pops Chorus, directed by Cameron Keys, and the holiday music that everyone looks forward to each year. The Maui Pops' guest artist, Mr. Doug LaBrecque, will be joining the Maui Pops Chorus in singing favorite songs of the Holiday season.

One of the most prolific concert performers of his generation, Mr. LaBrecque has been a soloist with some of the world's finest symphony orchestras, including The National Symphony, The Israel Philharmonic (Tel Aviv), The Chicago Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra, The Atlanta Symphony, and The San Francisco Symphony, among many others.

Maui Pops' Rodgers and Hammerstein Celebration (January 25, 2015)

New York headliners Christiane Noll and William Michals have been presenting this Rodgers and Hammerstein Celebration program to audiences in various cities throughout the U.S. that have an orchestra qualified for its production. The Maui Pops Orchestra does qualify, and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center is a perfect venue for this celebration.

Christianne Noll starred on Broadway in the Kennedy Center revival of Ragtime, receiving Tony and Drama Desk nominations and winning a Helen Hayes Award for her portrayal of Mother. She has made many Broadway and National Tour appearances in six well-known shows, and has been a frequent guest soloist as part of Bravo Broadway with symphony orchestras in almost every state in the USA, as well as international appearances.

Baritone William Michals recently appeared in the landmark revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific at Lincoln Center and made his Broadway debut as "The Beast" in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Many other starring roles have earned him awards. Michals regularly appears with the country's leading orchestras, including the San Francisco, San Diego, Utah, and Hartford Symphonies, and The New York Pops, as well as the Hong Kong Philharmonic.

Maui Pops Presents Keola Beamer (February 22, 2015)

Keola Beamer is one of Hawai'i's premier singer/songwriters, arrangers, composers, and Master of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. His well of talent springs from five generations of Hawai's most illustrious and beloved musical families. Moanalani Beamer, Keola's wife, will provide culturally significant hula with some of the pieces.

Maui Pops Goes to the Ballet (March 22, 2015)

This concert will be the first all-classical concert in the 10-year history of Maui Pops. The first half will include the Overture to La Forza del Destino by Verdi, the first movement of Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4 (Italian), and two movements from the Firebird Suite by Stravinsky. After Intermission and the setting up of the stage, the Maui Academy of Performing Arts, directed by MAPA Dance Director Kathleen Schultz will present selected scenes from the ballet "Coppélia" by Léo Delibes.
