This concert is part of the MACC’s Ho‘onanea concert series so there will be pre-show festivities in the Yokouchi Pavilion courtyard, displays of Maui arts & crafts, with dinners, snacks and a full range of beverages available for purchase.
Hawai'i's top-selling female artist, Maui’s own Amy Hānaiali'i, will present an evening full of classics; Hanaiali’i classic songs and Christmas classics. Amy Hanaiali’i, a six-time Grammy nominee and an eighteen-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner, pays tribute to the award-winning song, Pālehua, one of Hawai'i’s most famous songs, and one of the world’s most danced-to songs among hula Hālau across the globe. Pālehua, a beautiful mountain on O'ahu, inspired creative magic when Amy Hānaiali'i and the late Uncle Willie K united there 25 years ago to compose some of Hawai'i’s most beloved songs. The song, Pālehua, was named one of the best 50 songs ever written by Honolulu Magazine.
A world premiere video in honor of this milestone will be a part of the evenings diverse program. With the holidays approaching, Amy will feature selections from her critically acclaimed album, A Hawaiian Christmas. All are a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
