The Kona Music Society will hold an open house rehearsal at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 28, at Kealakehe Intermediate School band room. No audition required. Fall rehearsals will culminate in several holiday-themed concerts, to include portions of Handel’s Messiah with orchestra and a free Family Holiday Concert at the Old Airport.
Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights, 6-8 p.m. in the band room. The Kona Music Society is a dynamic chorus of mixed voices formed without the requirement of audition. It is community based, encompassing a major portion of West Hawaii. There is also a youth chorus available. Singers rehearse weekly and prepare concerts in two major seasons: Christmas and Spring, either alone or in partnership with guest artists and orchestral groups.
