Legacies: Ho`omau Benefit is Sept. 14
Tickets are currently on sale for a one-night-only extravaganza at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo Performing Arts Center when past and present University performers grace the stage in a special event to benefit the UH-Hilo Performing Arts Center and Department.
Legacies: Ho`omau takes place on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. to celebrate the performing arts.
“It is a way of not only paying tribute and honoring all of the gifted artists that came before, but hopefully it will also inspire the young up and coming talent to go forth and embrace their talents and pursue their dreams,” said Lee Dombroski, PAC manager.
The evening features live music by an eight-piece band under the direction of Trever Veilleux, a host of singers, including faculty, students and alumni, and dance performances in an array of genres, as well as short comedic film offerings.
To add to the excitement, surprise gift boxes will be available for $10. Surprises may include a handcrafted koa bowl, UH-Hilo PAC season ticket packages, Fall Quatro ticket packages, pairs of tickets to UH-Hilo PAC events, and other novel items.
Tickets are reserved seating and priced at $20 General, $10 UH Hilo/HawCC students (with valid ID) and children up to age 17, and are available by calling the UH-Hilo Box Office at 974-7310 or ordering online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu.
