Last night the UHMC Music Club hosted the final Open Mic of the spring 2016 semester. It was followed by a songwriting contest co-sponsored by Music Studies @ UHMC and the Hawai‘i Songwriting Festival. There was a plethora of talent on display, and the winner was Jacob Trevino, who performed this composition “This Is My Life.” Jacob won a scholarship to the Hawai‘i Songwriting Festival for his outstanding work. Judges for the contest were Maui-based rock singer/songwriter Stef Mariani and Hapa’s bass player/singer/songwriter Tarvin Mākia.
Congratulations and mahalo to all of the contestants, and everyone else who showed up to support the event!
