George Kuo Hawaiian BandSoka University is opening its new 1000 seat Soka Performing Arts Center on March 31st for a special Open Rehearsal to benefit tsunami victims in Japan.  The Hawaiian band of George Kuo, Aaron Mahi and Martin Pahinui will be rehearsing and helping staff members evaluate and adjust the acoustics of the hall from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. Attendees are asked to make a donation of their choice to the Tsunami Relief.  This is the first time that a rehearsal in the new performing arts center has been open to the community.

Soka University is proud to share this opportunity to help others and to enjoy the music of George Kuo (6 and 12 string slack key guitar), Martin Pahinui (6 string slack key guitar), and Aaron Mahi (bass guitar) who are masters of the traditional folk art of Hawaiian slack key guitar and vocal melodies.  They are known for their deep soulful delivery projected in a language and feeling that anyone can understand and appreciate. Their performance features the intimacy of solo slack key guitar followed by trio jam sessions, alternating spontaneous instrument solos and unique vocal harmonies.  

Donation of choice to Tsunami Relief.
