"Symphonically Spooky"

All Hallow's Eve, or "Halloween", falls on a Monday, but there are plenty of spooky festivities to be had on Sunday, October 30th at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel along the Kohala Coast.

We'll be kicking off our current season with a wide-ranging selection of classical works designed to get you into the mood to experience a dash of the supernatural, a pinch of the occult, and whatever otherworldly experiences life has to offer with "Symphonically Spooky".

Below is merely a taste of some of the great works we will be playing under the baton of Maestro Brian Dollinger during our inaugural concert for the 2016/2017 season.

  • Danse Macabre, op. 40 by Camille Saint-Saëns
  • In the Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg
  • Funeral March of a Marionette by Charles Gounod
  • Witches Round Dance from Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz

And much more!
Date and Time:
 Sunday, October 30th at 4 PM
The Grand Ballroom of the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel
"New Year's In Paradise"

While the rest of the world may get back to work on January 3rd, here in Hawaii, it is rarely too late to celebrate the arrival of a New Year, ripe with possibility!

In contrast to the dangerous and suggestive atmosphere of the musical lineup for our October Concert, "New Year's In Paradise" is designed to uplift, inspire, and set the tone for everyone to have a memorable and delightful 2017.

This concert will feature a strong selection of classical Strauss Waltzes, and more:

  •  Wein, Weib, und Gesang, op. 333 (Wine, Women, and Song) 
  • Le nozze de Figaro Overture by W.A. Mozart
  • Carnival Overture, op. 92 by Antonin Dvorak
  • Orpheus in the Underworld Overture by Jacques Offenbach

And more!

This concert will also be the debut of the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra at the Keauhou Convention Center, located at the Sheraton Resort in Kona. We are delighted to finally be working with a venue and organization that has been such a stalwart supporter of the arts on the Big Island, including the Kona Choral Society and the Chamber Orchestra of Kona, both of whom feature many of the same players as the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra.

Date and Time:
 Sunday, January 22nd at 4 PM
The Keauhou Convention Center at the Sheraton Resort in Kona
