Maui Music Mission students to perform ‘Adore Him’

By Staff | Dec 20, 2018

The cast of “Adore Him” includes Jayla Brummel as Mary and Koby McLaughlin as Joseph.

KAHANA – Maui Music Mission’s annual production of “Adore Him,” a Christmas Musical, will be presented on Sunday, Dec. 23, at 9 a.m. at Lahaina Christian Fellowship at 4275 Hine Way in Kahana.

This year, the cast are all keiki students of Maui Music Mission.

Soloists are Valentina Medina-Tellez singing “Mary Did You Know,” Alana Robalinho singing “Noel” and Miranda Somers presenting the title song, “Adore Him.”

Refreshments will be served. All donations benefit the After School Music Club (ASMC) financial aid program.

Maui Music Mission is inspiring keiki through music. Children ages 5-13 are playing ukulele, piano, violin, drums and more in a low-cost after school program.

The musical world is coming alive in them as they gain understanding of music as a universal language and culture. Confidence is booming as they fearlessly perform several times each month. Watch them perform at the Outlets of Maui on Friday, Dec. 21, starting at 5 p.m.

MMM leaders Reuben and Ronda Pali strive to provide sponsorships for all who apply because of their belief that music is essential and should be available to everyone.

Most ASMC members receive reduced tuition and are partially sponsored through donations from their audiences.

Visit “Christmas Town” – MMM’s “pop-up shop” – at the Outlets of Maui to further support the music mission.

Open through Dec. 24 from noon to 7 p.m., it’s the place to get all of your gifts wrapped. Santa’s elves are on the job, and they are pros at making your gifts look great. You can even use their “Self-Elf Station” if you prefer to do it yourself. All proceeds are by donation.

Due to the high demand for enrollment, and the eagerness of student members to achieve more in music, elective classes are offered in the evenings.

Electives include orchestra, voice, drums and Advanced Performance Crew. Members qualify for one free elective, once per week. Non-members may audition to join a group with low monthly dues.

ASMC sessions align with the public school quarters. January enrollment is open; register online at www.mauimusicmission.com. Contact Maui Music Mission at mauimusicmission@gmail.com or call (808) 463-7856.
