University of Hawai`i Maui College’s The Music Club’s Open Mic scheduled on Thursday, March 15, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the campus Multipurpose Room will feature special guest artist, 25-year-old ukulele virtuoso Andrew Molina. The popular family-friendly open mic is free, open to the public and welcomes all talents and ages. Food will also be provided.
Molina is a talented, up-and-coming musician, who is always trying to find a new way to take the ukulele to the next level. His music can be described as a mix of Hawaiian, pop, rock, Latin and a little bit of jazz. He released two CDs, “The Beginning” in 2014 and “A New Journey” in 2017.
UHMC Chorus and the Institute for Hawaiian Music will also provide performances that evening.
“For the past six years, our Open Mic have provided a stage to talented artists both the young and old,” said Karyn Sarring, advisor to The Music Club. “We wanted to showcase all the different talents in our community – whether if you love to sing, play an instrument, recite slam poetry, do magic tricks, perform stand-up comedy, act or dance, or if you have a hidden talent, come perform at the Open Mic.”
The Open Mic is also an opportunity for UH Maui College performance classes in music, drama and language classes. Those interested may also just come and watch.
