Anyone with a taste for culture can appreciate being swept away in a cloud of classical music.

People around the world go to major hubs like New York or Los Angeles to witness a great philharmonic performance.

Thanks to the MACC’s wonderfully expansive lineup, you had the option to experience African, Hawaiian, Spanish, Scottish, and classical music all this week!


This Sunday afternoon at The Castle Theater, the Maui Pops Orchestra will give a performance. They have prepared a smattering of various popular classical works, including Brahms, Mozart, and Beethoven.


The featured pieces will be the Academic Festival Overture by Brahms, Symphony 41 “Jupiter” (1st Movement) by Mozart, and Moldau by Smetana.

In a grand finale to end all grand finales, special guest artist, Sara Buechner, will perform Beethoven’s dynamic masterpiece, Piano Concerto No. 4.

Beuchner has performed as a featured soloist with orchestras around the world. She has also recorded a number of albums.


She has been featured at New York’s Lincoln Center as one of the few concert pianists who performs the originals score to silent movies like Ben Hur, which is 150 minutes of nonstop music!

Well-loved for her charismatic, dynamic stage performance, a review from the Vancouver Georgia Straight celebrated her “extrovert temperament. Bouncing on the bench and muggling like a metal guitarist she tore into the keyboard with abandon.”

Meanwhile, the Washington Post wrote “Buechner’s performance… with its soft contours and liquid, legato phrasing… had a beauty that might have taken even Mozart’s breath away”

Come immerse yourself in the sonic soup that stirs the soul beyond language. Classical Music.

You can get your seasonal fix this Sunday night starting at 3:30 in the afternoon.

Tickets are $10, $21, $26, $41 (plus applicable fees). Contact
