Stanford Choral

The Stanford Chamber Chorale

The Stanford Chamber Chorale is the Stanford Department of Music’s most select choir comprising 24 voices drawn from both graduate and undergraduate students at Stanford University. Hailing from across the United States and around the world, these singers represent a variety of academic disciplines and degree programs.

As members of the Chamber Chorale, these Stanford students meet a demanding schedule of performing, touring, and recording while maintaining their rigorous academic programs. The 24-member Chorale is on tour to Hawaii in late March, and will make their Big Island premiere at Kahilu.

Directed by, Stanford University Music Department Chair, Stephen M. Sano, the Chorale’s performance will consist of chorale works ranging from Gregorian Chant to newly-composed works, to Hawaiian part-song, to folk songs and spirituals.

The press has described Dr. Sano as “a gifted conductor,” and his work as “Wonderful music making!…evident in an intense engagement with his charges: the musicians responded to this attention with wide-eyed musical acuity.”

Still other reviews have lauded “It is difficult to believe that any choral group anywhere is capable of performing better than the Stanford chorus under the direction of Stephen M. Sano.” The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has recognized the Stanford Chamber Chorale, under Dr. Sano’s leadership, with inclusion in five categories in the preliminary balloting for the 2013 Grammy Award, including the category “Best Choral Performance.”

Dr. Sano is also active in his ancillary fields of interest, Hawaiian choral music, the music of Queen Liliʻuokalani, kī hōʻalu (Hawaiian slack key guitar) and North American Taiko (Japanese American drumming). As a slack key artist, his recordings have been nominated as finalists for the prestigious Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award and the Hawaiian Music Award. His most recent release, Songs from the Taro Patch, was on the preliminary ballot for the 2008 Grammy Award in Hawaiian Music.

Tickets are $20/$15/$10/$5 and available online at www.kahilutheatre.org, by calling (808) 885-6868, or at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office, at 67-1186 Lindsey Road, Kamuela, HI 96743, Monday-Friday, from 9am to 1pm.

After performing at Kahilu every presenting season since 1982, this is The Brothers Cazimero’s first performance back on the Kahilu stage following the theatre’s intermission. Robert Cazimero praises “I applaude the efforts of those who have helped Kahilu Theatre return, open in Waimea. It is a wonderful thing and we truly all reap the benefits from such worthwhile and arduous work…E O Waimea.”

The mastery of Robert Cazimero on bass and Roland Cazimero on twelve-string guitar is paired with fluid vocals for a sensational night of Hawaiian music. The Brothers Cazimero have charmed sold-out shows from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo with their showmanship and humor. Audiences of all generations are moved by the aloha felt in their music.

Honored with 25 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards and a Grammy nomination, “The Caz” have released over 35 recordings and 3 DVDs. In 2006, Robert and Roland were inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame.

Getting their start amidst the Hawaiian cultural renaissance of the 1970s, The Brothers Cazimero led the Hawaiian tradition of mele, or song, forward with a modern sound. Today, they continue to infuse elements of the past into their presentation of songs, chants, and dance of their ancestors. Robert Cazimero is also the visionary and kumu hula of Halau Na Kamalei, the first all-male hula halau or school. Members of the halau often accompany the brothers on stage as dancers and as a choral group.

Tickets are $20, $34, $44 or $64 depending on seats. Tickets are available at kahilutheatre.org or call 885-6868.
