About

This week, from the Kahilu Theater in Kamuela, Hawaii, our line-up of outstanding performers includes a 15-year-old violinist performing the fiery Sonatensatz by Brahms and a young pianist from Hawaii performing music written to conjure up a wild snow storm – even though she herself has never experienced so much as a flurry.
