HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Hawaii's young professionals will come together on October 9 from 6:09 to 10:09 p.m. to showcase symphonic music in a light never seen before with a transcontinental immersion of sound.  This exclusive "9…It's Not What You Think" event will take place at RumFire at the Sheraton Waikiki, where guests can network with Hawaii's future professionals and experience a night of music's newest sounds.

In keeping with the theme "9…It's Not What You Think," Bacardi will feature a $.09 specialty drink available only to those who wear orange.  Presale tickets are $15 and $25 at the door.  VIP tickets will also be available for $100, offering specialty pupus and champagne throughout the evening and a chance to mingle with the featured musicians.

Sponsored by Sheraton Waikiki, Rumfire and Bacardi, "9….It's not What You Think" will showcase the sounds of local entertainers who have teamed up with Los Angeles based Maestro, "Double G" Gallegos from daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra.

"We are excited to bring together the essential spirit of hip hop music with the symphonic sound of classical music, orchestrating the night with acoustic instruments, classical musicians, singers, rap and the sound of the DJ," said local DJ Kutmaster Spaz.

Maestro "Double G" will share the stage with alumni from Hawaii's Youth Symphony, musicians from Hawaii's Evasive Species, Slapp Symphony and more, blending every imaginable form of music with the heart beat of the streets.  In addition, the classically trained voices of Hawaii's own Lea Woods Almanza and Starr Kalahiki will be featured throughout the night.
