Free Hand­bell Con­cert At Pa­liku

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Hakuoh Uni­ver­sity Hand­bell Choir re­turns for its 24th Good­will Tour of Hawaii, and it will per­form at 7 p.m. Feb. 17 at Pa­liku Theatre.

The free con­cert will con­sist of clas­si­cal se­lec­tions, like Pachel­bel’s Canon in D and popular hits like Let It Go from Dis­ney’s Frozen, as well as is­land mu­sic like Hawaii Aloha.

Di­rected by Hiro­taka Arai, the 13- mem­ber en­sem­ble per­forms on sil­ver hand­bells, which have a range of seven oc­taves. Some of the bells are eas­ily rung by hand, while oth­ers weigh more than 15 pounds and are hit with a mal­let.

Other public per­for­mances by the choir will be staged Fri­day at Cen­tral Union Church, Satur­day at Ala Moana Cen­ter and Feb. 18 at Lee­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege.

Two years ago, Hakuoh Uni­ver­sity re­newed its in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tive agree­ment with UH com­mu­nity col­leges, which in­cludes a stu­dent ex­change pro­gram and this con­cert tour.
