July 22, 2017

“Songs of the Uplands” will refer to the winds and the rains often named for the mountains or valleys with which they are associated. The song, “Ku‘u Morning Dew,” speaking of the mist-shrouded highland, evokes the trees of the forest. 

Each concert laden with stories and lore, songs, hula, and chant, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Individual tickets are $30 each in advance, or $35 at door. 
See the series package for $100 for season of 4.

You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on our site before the performance.
We ask that you stow your coolers before the performance—
they are not allowed in the seating area for everyone’s safety and comfort.
