The Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present a unique, live performance in the Schaefer International Gallery on Tuesday, June 23, at 6 p.m., featuring a musical trio under the direction of award-winning composer Takuma Itoh.

Prior to the Tuesday concert, Maui’s student musicians are invited to attend a free observation event of the rehearsal for Conversations in a Garden on Monday, June 22, from 3 to 4 p.m.

Itoh’s music has been performed by symphonies around the world. At this intimate event, he will present a new musical composition created specifically to accompany Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s installation, Untitled (series #3), 2001.

“I will take … the listener on a leisurely stroll through a musical garden in which the listener will experience various different ‘objects’ throughout the piece, ‘gazing’ at some for an extended period, while passing over others more quickly, all without any prescribed pathway. I want the composition to feel completely immersed in the installation, growing organically out of the sounds of the space,” said Itoh.


Joining Itoh for the performance are guest musicians Stephanie Griffin on viola and Ian O’Sullivan on guitar.


A conversation with the musicians will follow the performance.

Tickets are $20. Seating is limited: for tickets, call The MACC Box Office at (808) 242-7469.

For more information about the rehearsal, contact Neida Bangerter at (808) 243-4288 or via email.
