ECA Special Engagement: Willie K
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 | 7:30 pm | Tickets $29-$64
When the Honolulu Pulse said, “Willie K can play or sing almost anything an American audience might ask for,” that wasn’t hype, it was the literal truth. The Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country and even opera— and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment. No less than Prince was a huge fan, while another avowed fan is a fellow Hawaiian who goes by the name Barack Obama. Sponsored by Jack Loos

Cantus: Discovery of Sight
Thursday, February 15, 2018 | 7:30 pm | Tickets $19-$49
Light is an integral part of life, from controlling our daily habits and cycles, to providing nourishment , warmth, and protection. But what happens when light is taken away, or event restored? We all have experienced our own personal "sunrises" or "twilight hours". There are even moments in our lives when we recognize the impact of vision in new ways.

Including seasoned masterpieces like Richard Strauss’ Traumlicht and Franz Schubert’s Die Nacht, Discovery of Sight also breaks new ground with Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque and a brand new commission from Gabriel Kahane.  But at its heart, Discovery of Sight revels in the mystery, science, and poetry of what it means to truly “see”.
