This week, from the Kahilu Theater in Kamuela, Hawaii, our line-up of outstanding performers includes a 15-year-old violinist performing the fiery Sonatensatz by Brahms and a young pianist from Hawaii performing music written to conjure up a wild snow storm – even though she herself has never experienced so much as a flurry.

Alexander Hersh, cello, 16 from Chicago, IL, performing III. Rasch und mit Feuer from Fantasy Pieces for Cello and Piano by Robert Schumann.

Tiffany Cheung, piano, 17, from Honolulu, HI, performing Transcendental Etude No. 12 (“Chasse-Neige”) by Franz Liszt.
