HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Pops, the state's first pops orchestra, today unveiled its third season schedule, a slate that includes beloved music by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, and more. The six concerts, under the direction of Maestro Matt Catingub, cover widely varied genres, from dance music to Latin pop to rock and jazz.
Hawaii Pops concerts have become synonymous with outstanding special guests, and the 2015-2016 season is no exception. Local legends Amy Hanaiali'i, Henry Kapono and Jimmy Borges will headline two of the concerts, with Christina Souza, Loretta Ables-Sayre and Kenny Loggins also joining the fun.
"We've got two stellar seasons under our belt," said Catingub, the Pops' artistic director. "Now we're gearing up for what will be the best season yet. The artists who make up the Pops have proven themselves to be a tremendous ensemble, and when you mix in our special guests, the musicianship becomes peerless, the entertainment priceless!"
Following the fantastic reception last year to the performance of The Beatles' Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band albums in their entirety, the Pops will recreate that magic by performing the Rubber Soul and Revolver albums in the same manner. The music of the "Chairman of the Board," Frank Sinatra, will also be celebrated on what would have been the crooner's 100th birthday.
This season's concerts will be performed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, thanks to an exciting new partnership with Waikiki's premier resort destination.
All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $99, $79 and $45, and can be purchased here. Season ticket packages are available, offering major discounts. In addition, concertgoers who buy season tickets before July 31 receive an additional 5% discount. The discount applies to all ticket levels.
