KAHULUI – On March 3 at 3 p.m., Ebb & Flow Arts will celebrate its 20th anniversary season with a tenth biennial presentation by Maui Arts & Cultural Center in the Castle Theatre.

The Ebb & Flow Ensemble is comprised of Ignace Jang, violin; Sung Chan Chang, cello; and Robert Pollock, piano.

The concert features E&FA’s longstanding Korean-American music cultural exchange.

Over the years, there have been about 20 exchange programs both in the United States and South Korea.

Recently, the current president of Veritas Musicae (Seoul), Dr. Shinhee Park, invited four American composers – Sarn Oliver, Peter Swanzy, William Anderson and Pollock – to create short piano pieces based on Korean poetry.

Those were performed in Seoul in November 2018. Pollock will perform some of them on March 3 at the MACC.

The concert will also include works by Korean composers Eugene Lee, Sun Young Park and world-renowned Isang Yun.

The concert receives support from Korean American Foundation, Hawaii.

Other works on the program include Ravel’s ravishing “Sonata” for violin and cello, and American Henry Cowell’s last piece, “Trio,” for violin, cello and piano.

The show will also include films by Maui-based filmmakers, including Tom Vendetti and Gary Greenberg.

This event is part of E&FA’s annual international North South East West Festival 2019.

The festival is produced, in part, with support from Hawaii Tourism Authority, Aaron Copland Fund for Music, AHS Foundation, John R. Halligan Charitable Fund, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music, Edward T. Cone Foundation, Amphion Foundation, BMI Foundation, Kosasa Family Foundation (ABC Stores), Korean American Foundation Hawaii, Mayor Arakawa Community Kokua Fund, Vendetti Productions LLC, Amphion Foundation (NYC) and private contributions.
