Classical Pacific

Weekdays 3-6pm on HPR-2
  • Hosted by Louise Keali‘iloma King Lanzilotti

The finest of the world’s classical music to ease your afternoon drive. Featured on this newest of HPRʻs classical music programs will be the great orchestras, artists, and opera companies of the Pacific region, including Hawai‘i’s own.  Every other Friday, a special segment called “The Big Ears Music Club” will introduce young listeners to the joys of classical music.

Louise Keali‘iloma King Lanzilotti comes from a multi-ethnic background that has informed many of her beliefs. Her experience covers artistic, educational and administrative areas of the arts. As a conductor, she has been the musical director for many musicals in the past thirty years. In 2010, she founded Kalikolehua – El Sistema Hawai‘i, a free orchestra program for children from underserved neighborhoods, focused on transforming lives through music. She was the Managing Director of Honolulu Theatre for Youth for ten years (2001-2011), guiding it to greater stability through creative solutions and extensive partnerships. She served as Curator of Education at the former Contemporary Museum for thirteen years (1988-2001). Lanzilotti taught for over twenty years in public, private and alternative schools K – 12, developing a method of writing music and plays with students, which solidified her understanding of the importance of arts engagement for all.

  Today on Classical Pacific, I am celebrating Boxing Day by playing music by composers from the British Isles from the Renaissance forward. 

Boxing Day, celebrated in England since at least the Middle Ages, is held on the day after Christmas (or the first weekday after Christmas). The celebration now extends to many of the countries that were part of the British Empire. On this day, people have traditionally boxed up gifts for servants and workers to show their appreciation for work done throughout the year.

  Today, a concert of beautiful performances, some of them related to Christmas, but mostly pieces that you've called in about. You'll hear music from Bach, Mozart, Corelli, Brahms, Vivaldi, Haydn and Handel.
