Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii Invites Community to Share a Bear at Windward Mall

Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii Invites  Community to Share a Bear at Windward Mall

Sometimes, something as simple as a stuffed animal can make things more bearable for a child. That is why this Saturday, April 26, Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii will host its 17th annual Teddy Bear Round-Up and Family Resource Fair at Windward Mall's Center Court. Held in conjunction with Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month, which takes place throughout the month of April the event is a partnership with the Department of Health and the Child Abuse Prevention Planning Council. The drive hopes to gather new or gently used teddy bears or stuffed animals to share with local children suffering from abuse. This year, Prevent Child Abuse Hawai’i hopes to surpass the current Guinness World Record, which stands at 5,884 teddy’s bear collected by a Girl Scout troop in Florida.

Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

 Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra welcomes pianist Sara Davis Buechner and conductor Maximiano Valdés back to the Islands for a program of Gershwin, Beethoven and Ravel on Saturday, April 26, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 4 p.m. at the Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall. This will be the third program in the HSO’s Spring 2014 Halekulani Masterworks Series.

Buechner, who may well hold the world title for having the most piano concertos in her repertoire (more than 100!) and is noted for her interpretations of American and jazz-influenced works, will perform George Gershwin’s Concerto in F. More of a traditional, although jazzy, piano concerto than his earlier Rhapsody in Blue, which was actually orchestrated by fellow composer Ferde Grofé, the Concerto in F showcases Gershwin’s own mastery of orchestration.
