Holiday excitement is ramping up this weekend with two Nutcracker ballets to choose from on O’ahu—one at LCC and the other at Blaisdell. The Spring Wind Quintet will be at Kapolei library tomorrow, and there’s holiday family fun Sunday at the Art Academy. Here, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers flavors from two holiday choral events.
The O’ahu Choral Society, led by Esther Yu, performs carols by Benjamin Britten and a medley of Spanish songs of the season Saturday night at St. Andrew’s Cathedral. Find out more here: http://oahuchoral.org/
The Hawai’i Vocal Arts Ensemble, led by Tim Carney, presents holiday music from the Renaissance through the present in the Mystical Rose Oratory at Chaminade tonight, (Friday night) and Sunday. Check their website here:
