SEEING NEW ARTIST
Throughout our season of "The MACC presents..." we strive to bring to Maui's shores a selection of the best, newest, brightest acts of the world. A recent example is Black Arm Band, soulful singers and musicians from Australia who performed songs in 11 different Aboriginal languages backed by black-and-white projected images that showed 'the heart and humanity of the country.' The audience was enraptured:
"Chicken skin! I was totally immersed from the first song. I can't stop thinking about it!" -Hella M.
Other New Best things: the comic clown Jamie Adkins brought down the house with his "Cirque"-type antics... classical pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin inspired pin-drop attention in his audience ... visitors ooh-ed and aah-ed as they entered the vast silk 'cocoon' installation that is part of the current exhibit in the Schaefer International Gallery.
