The Maui Weekly

An afternoon of fine music, food, wine and coffee in Ka'anapali Coffee Estates on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 3 p.m. will benefit the Maui Community Band and Arts Education for Children Group (AECG).

Featuring live performances by the full band and its small ensembles, the event offers a chance to visit a special home in the middle of Maui's premier coffee plantation while enjoying pupu and desserts prepared by top Maui restaurants, accompanied by fine wines and specially roasted Ka'anapali coffee.

Under the direction of gifted musician and educator Lisa Owen, the band delivers extraordinary music experiences for youth and the Maui community. The Maui Community Band is the featured prelude each year of the Lahaina Fourth of July fireworks celebration, and plays regularly at many other Maui venues.

Enjoy an afternoon of fine music, food, wine and coffee in Ka‘anapali Coffee Estates on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 3 p.m.--a benefit for the Maui Community Band and Arts Education for Children Group (AECG).

Fifty musicians ranging from adult professionals to talented students rehearse weekly and perform together in an uplifting exchange of experience, talent, high expectations and relaxed camaraderie.

This inaugural event will benefit the band in its effort to perform for Maui at ever-higher levels and take the gift of Maui music to Mainland festivals in 2014. It will also benefit AECG, as it continues to promote musical events and workshops throughout the island.

Band members will not only perform, but also circulate among the guests, serving food and refreshments. A silent auction will feature fine art, attractions, restaurants, hotels and other unique opportunities.

For more information and to purchase tickets at $50 per person, call Barbara Newton at 281-6958. Tickets are limited.
