In music, a fermata is a pause of unspecified length on a note or a rest. During these uncertain times because of COVID-19, there is a fermata on Chamber Music Hawaii’s live performances for March, April, and likely May, but we realize that now, more than ever, music must continue to resonate.
We are committed to our mission of enriching Hawaii’s cultural life by promoting chamber music in our community and supporting the local, professional musicians who make up our resident ensembles. We are uncertain about the likelihood of rescheduling any of our concerts this season, but we hope that you will join us in helping to support our musicians during this difficult time. If you are a ticket holder for concerts in March, April, and May, please consider donating the value of your ticket back to CMH. Your donation may be tax deductible and 100% will be directed to financially support our musicians and help make up for their lost income. Please call (808) 489-5038 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your requests.
During this fermata, stay tuned to our website, emails, and social media channels as the situation becomes more clear. We will strive to find ways to bring music to you, our valued patrons.
And in the spirit of keeping the music alive, please click on the image above. Our Galliard String Quartet performs Queen Lili’oukalani’s Nani Na Pua Ko’olau (from the safety of their homes).
Be well and stay safe!
Your CMH Ohana
