Piano Concerto Aids Student Health Center
Classical compositions performed by Hilo’s top young pianists will be presented by the University of Hawaii at Hilo’s pharmacy program in a concerto Sunday to aid the campus student health center.
The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy hopes music will benefit UH Hilo’s Student Health Services as it soothes the soul at the concert beginning 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Performing Arts Center.
The concert features local pianists ranging from age 7 to 20 who study with pianist Anthony Maroudas.
Maroudas was born and raised in South Africa and studied with Lamar Crowson, pianist in the Melos Ensemble of London. An active soloist, chamber musician and collaborator, Maroudas has performed in South Africa, London, Greece and the United States. He is now based at his teaching studio in Hilo.
Performers include Nicholas Winters, 18, a UH-Hilo student who recently graduated from Waiakea High School; Mayuko Hamano, 15, a Hilo High School student; Ryan Witthans, 15, and Bryn Witthans, 15, both students at Kamehameha School; Marleena Sheffield, 20, a Hawai`i Community College student; Willa Wiggins, 16, from Hakalau; Abby Atkinson, 15, a Hilo High School student; and Edinn Kitagawa, 7, who attends Waiakea Elementary School.
