UHMC Music Club To Host Open Mic: Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Love to sing, play an instrument, slam poetry, do magic tricks, stand-up comedy, karaoke, act, dance – hula? Come perform (or just watch) at The Music Club of University of Hawaii – Maui College open mic on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 5 – 8 pm, Student Lounge. UHMC students, staff and faculty are invited along with the entire Maui community. All talents, All ages. Free admission and food. Please bring food to share. This is a family event and all kinds of talent found in Maui. “So many open mics are just for music, held late at night and is not for family.” says Karyn Sarring faculty advisor to the Music Club. “This is the fourth year of hosting open mics where people come with their families. We wanted to showcase all the different talents in our community. Also, all our music performance classes participate including the Institute of Hawaiian Music students and guest performers too!” Please e-mail or call 808 205-1241 for any information.

The pianos on campus

Recently, my article about the different pianos in different locations on campus appeared in our online student newspaper Ho‘oulu. “All the Right Notes – In All the Right Places” sounds like a song by One Republic. I wrote the article this past April for my journalism newswriting course to inform readers about the six locations that have pianos for students to use.
