UHMC Music Lecturer Receives Two Nā Hōkū Hanohano Nominations!

UH Maui College music lecturer Joel Katz was honored with two nominations for this year’s Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards. His CD “Adventures in Hawaiian Steel Guitar” made the final ballot in the “Jazz Album of the Year” category, and Joel also appears in the “Engineering” category for the same album. The second is notable as the category is adjudicated by the best engineers in the field, and not left to a vote of the general membership of the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts.

We’re proud of Joel’s professional accomplishments and happy that he is here to share his knowledge with our students, both from the performing aspects of making music, and the technical aspects of recording music. I mua, Joel, a loa‘a ka lei o ka lanakila!
