Classical Pacific December 15, 2017

Welcome to Classical Pacific for December 15th,  2017. I’m your host, John Zak.  

In today’s episode of Classical Pacific, we’ll hear music of Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Ravel, and Lauridsen.

Today is my final day hosting Classical Pacific. It was not a simple decision for me to decide to move on from a program I helped to bring into this world but, the creative muse calls, and I am optimistic for the future, both in terms of the ongoing health of Classical Pacific, and in terms of other projects that are on my horizon.

Mahalo to each of you who have supported Classical Pacific and the Big Ears Music Club. I encourage all of you to keep supporting these programs.  Louise King Lanzilotti will be in the captain’s chair on Monday, and I know she will do a wonderful job.

God willing and the creek don’t rise, I will be on air with you here at HPR in the coming year with some interesting things to share....in the meantime, from my  pu’uwai, I wish you “Mele Kalikimaka a me Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!” - John Kalani Zak

John Kalani Zak, the son of an airline executive father and a journalist mother, was born in Washington D. C. He has lived in and traveled to many locations around the globe, and is delighted to call Hawaiʻi his home.
