Toe-tapping music

Monday night was Dana Marsh‘s first rehearsal conducting the Early Music Hawaii choir for its upcoming concert, “Spain & The New World,” which will take place on Saturday, September 24th at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, at 7:30 pm. Poor Dana—he had been awake almost 24 hours in flying from New York to Hawaii, yet he still had the energy to conduct a fast-paced rehearsal with fast-paced music.

Luckily we will have THREE more rehearsals on this music before Saturday night’s concert! Some of this music goes by so fast, if you blink, you’ll miss something!

If you’ve never heard the toe-tapping baroque music from Latin America, here’s a little taste of what you can expect: Juan de Araujo’s “Ay Andar,” which will end Saturday night’s program.

The Early Music Hawaii Choir includes Naomi Castro, Rachel Lentz, Georgine Stark (soprano), Karyn Castro, Diane Koshi, Sarah Lambert Connelly (alto), Todd Beckham (countertenor), Karol Nowicki, Bowe Souza (tenor), Scott Fikse, Keane Ishii, and Jeremy Wong (bass).

Instrumentalists include Richard Savino and Hideki Yamaya, baroque guitar and vihuela, Anna Callner, gamba, Philip Gottling, dulcian and recorder, and Fred Marian0, percussion. Oh, and moi, on organ.
