WAILUKU – The Maui Historical Society is hosting a benefit concert on Saturday, Oct. 14, called Moonlight Mele with George Kahumoku Jr. & Friends from 5 to 8 p.m.
The fee is $5 per person (children 12 and under are free).
This event will feature Hawaiian music by the University of Hawaii Maui College Institute of Hawaiian Music with UHMC Instructor Keola Donaghy, noted Hawaiian entertainer and Hawaiian music mentor Kahumoku and local entertainer Kuikawa.
This event will be held on the grounds of Hale Ho’ike’ike at the Bailey House in Wailuku at 2375-A Main St., on property owned by the Maui Historical Society.
This benefit concert – part of a concert series established by Kahumoku more than five years ago – directly and completely benefits the Maui Historical Society.
The purpose of this concert series is to promote, preserve and perpetuate Hawaiian music, and to give Maui’s talented musicians a platform to share their music and stories, and to entertain visitors and locals alike.
Hale Ho’ike’ike is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features the largest collection of pre-western contact Hawaiian antiquities on Maui.
The museum also features Missionary, Plantation and Monarchy Era artifacts as well as original artwork by Edward Bailey depicting mid-19th century scenes of Maui.
