Roland Cazimero sick, Christmas concert canceled

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Illness has canceled the popular Cazimero Christmas Concert.

Friday, The Brothers Cazimero released a statement, saying that Roland is recovering from pneumonia, and that his doctors have advised against what would be a rigorous rehearsal schedule.

"Naturally we all hate to disappoint patrons and seldom cancel performances, but we are all more concerned about Roland's health and speedy recovery," said Hawaii Theatre's Artistic Director and General Manager Burton White, "This decision was made between Robert, Roland and me this morning at Roland's hospital bedside and the tears in Roland's eyes were testament to how disappointed he was that we had to make this difficult decision."

Roland's brother, Robert Cazimero, says "The energies I was putting into the final touches of a great show are all now redirected to the health and well-being of my brother, Roland."

Ticket refund information will be announced in the next few days.
