By Maui Now Staff
The Maui Arts& Cultural Center offers two stellar events over the upcoming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22.
Saturday, March 21, 7:30 p.m., McCoy Studio Theater
Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winners Kellen and Līhau Hannahs Paik embody the name they’ve chosen for their musical presence. Kūpaoa is “suffused with fragrance or heady with scent.” Their talents are many.They infuse musical ability and charm into two sweet, rich voices, creating a spicy, soothing and alluring blend. While the sound of the music entices the ear, the content of their selections will also engage the heart and mind. Tickets are $30.
Maui POPS Goes to the Ballet

The Maui Academy of Performing Arts will partner with the Maui Pops orchestra and Music Director James Durham to present the comic ballet Coppelia with music by Delibes. Premiered in Paris in 1870, it has become one of the most popular ballets of all time. Scenes from the ballet, showcasing MAPA dancers, will fill one half of the concert. The Maui Pops orchestra will perform selections of music composed by Verdi, Mendelssohn and Stravinsky to fill the other half. Tickets: $15, $30, $40 and $50 (half-price for students 18 and under for $30 to $50 seats).
