Amy Beach was the first American woman composer to achieve acclaim in America and abroad. After years of neglect, her compositions are being rediscovered, and some of Honolulu’s best musicians are offering a chance to hear her work. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.
The Fresh Chamber salon series continues with "Beached!" celebrating chamber music by Amy Beach and artwork by respected Hawaii artist, Dorothy Faison. The performance/installation is scheduled for Thursday, 7:30, at Studio 909 at 909 Kapi’olani Boulevard.
