HPU concert offers world's best music

by Alexia Detoisien, newswriting

 

“You are in for a musical treat” said Susan Duprey, the HPU choral director, as she opened the Moonlit Serenade, March 11 at the First Presbyterian Church in Makiki. She was right.

Moonlit Serenade was a fundraising concert held by members of the HPU International Chorale and Vocal Ensemble to help them pay for their trip to Europe for next year’s performance in Vienna, Austria. The HPU Vocal Ensemble will represent Hawai‘i to honor Mozart’s 250th birth anniversary. The concert generated $2,000 in donations toward the $40,000 goal the students must meet.

 

Performers stuck to HPU’s multicultural theme by performing songs from around the world, as if flying across Europe, America, and Asia. A voyage to India was given by Annapoorani Murali, Master of Science in Information Systems, who performed a typical Indian song called “Chinnangiru Kiliye.”

An amazing interpretation of “Largo al factotum della oittà” (Figaro) from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, performed by Jesse King, was received with resounding applause by the audience.

“ I’m so proud of them” said Duprey of her singers “I am speechless.”

The International Chorale and Vocal Ensemble’s next concert will be held May 1 at Kawaiaha‘o Church.
