Violin Performance and Workshop
MAC News Release
Molokai is in for a treat! Kauai’s young violin virtuoso Kimberly Hope will perform at Hiro’s ‘Ohana Grill on Friday, Ja. 18, at 7 p.m. Before her performance, the Molokai Instrumental Music (MIM) Program will open for her under the direction of Bob Underwood.
Earlier that afternoon, the Molokai Arts Center (MAC) will sponsor a private Violin Workshop for MIM’s Intermediate/Advance Class. Kimberly will perform on her acoustic and electric violins, demonstrate different genres/styles (including using a looper pedal), and share her experiences as a violinist. She will work with students to help them prepare for their evening performance.
Kimberly, now an accomplished violinist, music teacher, and composer, started playing the violin at the age of 10 in St. Louis, Missouri. Her family moved to Kauai where she was able to continue polishing her craft. She left for college and earned a Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance from The College of Wooster in Ohio where she also served as concertmaster of the Wooster Symphony Orchestra. Now back home on Kauai, she has been performing all over Hawaii, collaborating with musicians all over the world, and gaining prominence on social media. Her music can be found on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Periscope under “Kimberly Hope Music.” She believes that music is a universal language that can help heal and bring people together, so she is currently working on her debut album of original works.
In lieu of their regular menu, Hiro’s ‘Ohana Grill will have a special “Local Style” Buffet for the special event. There will be an ala carte limited appetizer menu, and no cover charge. Come join us for “An Evening with Violinist Kimberly Hope.”
